Australian Government Enforces Pool Safety

The Australian government is now enforcing new pool laws affecting residential pool owners, a move that shows American pool safety laws are going global.

Starting Dec. 1, 2010, a pool safety certificate issued by a licensed pool safety inspector has been required when buying, selling or leasing a property with a pool. By May 4, 2011, all pools will need to be included on the state-based pool safety register. And by 2015, all new and existing pools must be upgraded to comply with new safety standards.

According to the Whitsunday Times, pool owners are required to pay a one-time fee of $280 to get a safety certificate in accordance with the new pool fencing laws. The fee includes a preliminary visit, one inspection and the certificate if issued.

The law applies to every pool owner, says the newspaper, and that the certification must be renewed every two years.
