On 1st December 2019, new laws came into effect for swimming pool compliance. Councils must now keep a register of all pools & spas in the area. Owners are required to have their pool fences (pool barrier) inspected & approved for safety and compliance by a pool safety inspector. So, you’re doing the right thing researching swimming pool inspection services.
As a pool or spa owner, you need to complete the following to ensure your pool fence is compliant:
1. Register your pool with your local council.
2. Organise an inspection of your pool barrier by a registered swimming pool inspector.
3. Rectify any issues identified by your pool safety inspection.
4. Have the pool re-inspected and receive a certificate of compliance.
5. Submit this form to your local council.
I can help you with this.
There is a phased roll out of the inspection program.

Depending on when the pool or spa was constructed, your pool fence should be INSPECTED & APPROVED by the following due dates:

Pool fence inspections in Melbourne, Australia, are a critical aspect of pool safety. They are designed to ensure that the physical barrier around a pool, such as a fence, gate, or lock, is in good repair and functioning properly, to reduce the risk of injury or death to individuals in or around the pool.
Pool barrier inspections in Melbourne are typically conducted by qualified pool inspectors who are trained to identify potential hazards and assess the compliance of pool barriers to ensure they meet the Victorian requirements.
During Melbourne pool fence inspections, the inspector will thoroughly examine the physical barrier around the pool, including the fence, gate, lock, and other safety features. They will look for any gaps, weaknesses, missing components, or other hazards that could potentially put individuals in the pool area at risk.
Once the inspection is complete, the inspector will provide a detailed report of their findings, including any necessary recommendations for repairs or upgrades to bring the pool fence up to code. This report can serve as evidence of compliance and can be used by pool owners as a reference for making any required changes to ensure the pool area is safe and secure. This is when you will be issued with a certificate of barrier compliance.
Pool fence inspections are typically required by law in Melbourne and other parts of Australia, and are typically conducted on a regular basis by pool or building inspectors.
