Watch why pools need to be safe for children
Is your Pool registered?
All pools in Queensland have to be registered on the Queensland Government’s Pool Safety Register. Failing to register your pool can result in an on the spot fine of over $200 or a maximum penalty of over $2000 if a complaint is made to your Local Government or the Department of Local Government and Planning.

Is your pool compliant?
Queensland's new pool safety laws were introduced in 2009 and aim to reduce the incidences of drowning and serious immersion injuries of young children in swimming pools. The laws affect new and existing pools.
Pool owners have until 30 November 2015 to comply with the new pool safety laws, or earlier if they sell or lease their property before this time.
We can assist you in ensuring your pool is compliant. We can advise you as a consultant or conduct an inspection for the issuing of a Pool Safety Certificate if required.
If you are unsure what is required, please read through our Fact Sheets to help you understand your obligations.
