Pool Fencing Regulations in Sydney
The state regulations of NSW apply to Sydney as well as well as other NSW cities. NSW has done a comprehensive review of ‘Swimming Pools Act 1992, which has been finalised in 2012. This new pool fencing regulations has a lot of similarities with the QLD regulations that was brought out in 2010. The main purpose of this comprehensive review was to make pools in NSW safer for the young children.
The new regulations states that:
- Every home with swimming pools has to be registered by 29th October 2013.
- Registration will be available to use by 29th of April 2013.
- Failing to register will attract a penalty of $2,200.
- Every home has to have a pool compliance certificate before the property is rented or sold
- Pool registration must be done within 12 months of its establishment
- Pool fencing must be certified within 12 months as well
Pool owners can certify their own pool fence however it is advisable to hire a professional to do the job. Because otherwise important elements of the pool fencing certification may be missed and pool owners might be exposed to a massive fine for having illegal pool fencing.
Always consult with your local council to make sure you follow their requirements.
