All pools and spas are required by legislation to comply with the Australian Standard AS1926 for pool fencing. Queensland has specific pool laws which cover every swimming pool and spa pool that holds water over 300mm in depth and used specifically for aquatic purposes.

Ensure that all pool fencing requirements are adhered to at the time of lease or sale.

Your property manager will be aware of the changing legislation and any requirements that you need to abide by. Your pool may only be inspected by a licenced pool safety compliance officer and your pool compliancy certification must be redone every 2 years for a residential house and every year within a unit complex or a holiday letting premises.
