For information on the updated certificate lodgement dates for swimming pool and spas, please see here.
The Victorian Government introduced new safety laws for pools and spas in December 2019. If you are the owner of a property with a pool or spa, you must:
- register your pool or spa
- lodge a certificate of barrier compliance
- have your safety barrier inspected and certified every four years.
If your pool or spa was built after 1 November 2020, your building surveyor will issue a certificate of barrier compliance as part of the building permit process. You will need to lodge this with your registration within 30 days of the occupancy permit or certificate of final inspection being issued.
If your pool or spa was built before 1 November 2020, you still need to register. Once you have registered, we will provide you with a due date to lodge your certificate of compliance.
