From 1 December 2010, pool safety certificates are required when selling or leasing a property with a pool. Pool safety inspectors can only issue a certificate when they have placed the certificate details onto the pool safety register. Pool owners and others, such as real estate agents and solicitors, will be able to search the register.

The legislation does not set the amount that pool safety inspectors can charge. This is determined by the market and pool owners are encouraged to shop around for the best deal. Local Governments are obliged to provide a pool safety inspection service if asked and it is a matter for individual Local Governments if they charge and, if so, how much to provide the inspection service.

The main role of pool safety inspectors is to inspect pools to determine whether or not they comply with the pool safety standards. Upon inspection, the inspector must issue a pool safety certificate or nonconformity notice, depending on the outcome of the inspection. The nonconformity notice must state how the pool doesn’t comply and what needs to be done to make it comply. The inspector can also, if agreed with the pool owner, carry out specified minor repairs (such adjusting or replacing a latch or striker and removing climbable objects).

If pool owners are in any doubt about their pool safety inspection, they should request further clarification from the pool safety inspector in the first instance. They may also contact the Pool Safety Council for advice and may appeal an inspector’s nonconformity notice to the Building and Development Dispute Resolution Committees.
