Mandatory pool and spa registration

Due 1 November 2020

The deadline is fast approaching for the Victorian Government’s new mandatory pool and spa registration.

The deadline was extended by five months to Sunday 1 November 2020 due to the impacts of coronavirus.

The new legislative requirements mean private pool and spa owners must register with their local council to ensure their safety barrier meets the required safety standards. This legislation is in response to a series of coronial investigations, which found that faulty and unsafe pool barriers had contributed to the deaths of children in backyard pools.

To register your pool or spa online or for more information, visit www.boroondara.vic.gov.au/register-pool-spa or call 9278 4444.
