Pool/spa owners are required to register their pool/spa before 1 November 2020 (please note the change to this date - the previous date was 1 June, however this has been extended by the Victorian Government to 1 November).
Registration can be completed via this online form.
After registering your pool/spa online, Council will need to confirm the date of construction of your pool/spa, and applicable regulations (Australian Standards) that the barrier is required to comply with. Once we have confirmed these details, we will send you a pool/spa registration certificate. These certificates are generally sent to you within 30 days of lodgement of the online registration form.
Once your pool/spa is registered, you will need to organise an inspection of the pool/spa through a registered building practitioner (Building Surveyor or Building Inspector) of your choosing. Your spool/spa registration certificate will tell you when you need to complete the inspection by.
Once the Building Surveyor/Building Inspector has carried out the inspection and confirmed that your pool/spa safety barrier meets the regulations, they will provide you with a Certificate of Pool and Spa Safety Barrier Compliance (CPSSBC). This certificate will then need to be lodged with Council. Click here to lodge your Certificate of Pool/Spa Barrier Compliance Certificate.
