Can I apply for a Pool Certificate of Compliance?

Yes, the owner of any premises on which a swimming pool is situated may apply to the Council for a certificate of compliance with respect to the swimming pool.

For a fee of $150 Council will conduct an inspection of the pool.  If the Council is satisfied that the swimming pool complies with the requirements of the Act , Council must issue to the applicant a certificate to the effect that, as at the date on which it is issued, the swimming pool complies with those requirements.  If the inspection reveals the child resistant barrier is inadequate, Council may direct the owner to upgrade prior to issuing the certificate.
