How pool inspections work

Follow our step-by-step guide to ensure your pool or spa complies with Victorian pool fence laws.

1. Register your pool – If you have a spa or pool on your property, you must register it with your local council. For spas or pools built after 1 November 2020, the deadline for registration is within 30 days of the Certificate of Final Inspection or Occupancy Permit being issued. For more information about registration deadlines, visit the Victorian Building Authority website.

Registration involves paying a one-off registration fee and completing a registration form. Check your local council’s website for further details about registering your pool or spa.

2. Know your applicable barrier standardYour local council will let you know the barrier standard that applies to your pool or spa and the date by which you must lodge a Certificate of Compliance. You must provide the information about the applicable barrier standard to the pool safety inspector so they can carry out the inspection.

Details about the deadlines for inspection and lodgement of compliance certificates are available here

3. Get ready for pool safety inspections in Melbourne, Victoria – At this point, you may already have searched for “pool inspectors near me”. Choosing a local pool safety inspector like Dr. PoolSafe is smart because we have a working knowledge of your local Victorian council compliance requirements and pool fence regulations in Victoria.

Once you’ve made a booking, our registered pool fence inspector will visit your home to conduct a full on-site review of your barrier using the council registration information. Pool barrier inspections involve checking your existing pool safety barriers against the applicable barrier standard according to Australian Standards.

If your barrier meets the applicable barrier standard, our inspector will issue a Certificate of Pool and Spa Barrier Compliance (Form 23) on the day of the pool barrier inspection.

In cases where our pool fencing inspections show that the applicable barrier standard has not been met, you will receive a detailed report listing what needs to be done to bring the barrier up to compliance.

4. Make repairs – If our pool barrier inspection reveals that repairs are necessary, you will need to carry out the required work. At Dr. Pool Safe, we can recommend practical, cost-saving solutions and can perform follow-up pool safety barrier inspections.

5. ​Lodge your certificate of compliance – Once you have passed the pool safety barrier inspections — either the first time around or after repairs — you will receive a Certificate of Barrier Compliance (Form 23). Within 30 days, you must lodge this certificate with your local council.

Now you have met your legal obligations in relation to pool fence safety inspections. Note that you must obtain a new certificate every four years for pool compliance in Melbourne, Victoria.
