Application for Registration of Swimming Pool or Spa

The Victorian Government has introduced new legislation for all residential pools and spas aimed at improving safety and saving lives. Under the legislation, owners must register their pool or spa with Wyndham City Council by 1 June 2020.

Once the pool or spa is registered, a building inspector must determine whether its barrier complies with safety requirements. If the pool or spa barrier is not compliant, owners must fix it or install a new barrier.

When a building inspector is satisfied the pool or spa barrier is compliant, they will issue a Certificate of Barrier Compliance, which owners must lodge with Council.

Pool and spa owners are required to obtain and lodge Certificates of Barrier Compliance every four years.

Failure to meet your obligations under the new legislation may result in fines.

An inspection of your pool or spa barrier can only be carried out by:

  • a registered building surveyor
  • a registered building inspector
  • a municipal building surveyor

You can search for a registered building practitioner authorised to carry out  inspections and certification using the Find a practitioner tool.

For more information and FAQ, please visit the Victorian Building Authority website.
