Pool Safety Laws

Pool safety laws are necessary to keep young children safe and save lives. There is one pool safety standard in Queensland, designed to increase pool safety and simplify pool safety laws, which previously included 11 different safety standards.

It is mandatory that all regulated pools comply with the standard by 30 November 2015, or earlier if the property is sold or leased.

All pools in Queensland must be registered with the Queensland Building and Construction Commission (QBCC). To list your pool on the pool safety register, visit

To find out other important information such as what classes as a swimming pool; how to find out if your pool complies; and what to do if you are selling or leasing your property, visit the QBCC website.
