After your swimming pool or spa has been registered and inspected, you will receive a Certificate of Barrier Compliance from your building surveyor or inspector.
Certificates of Barrier Compliance must be lodged by a particular due date - the date is based on the construction date of the pool/spa.
When your barrier meets the required safety standard, your building surveyor or inspector will issue a Form 23 Certificate of Barrier Compliance.
You will need to upload the certificate within 30 days of receiving it from your building surveyor or inspector.
