SWIMMING POOL REGISTRATION
 
In accordance with the Swimming Pools Act 1992 all property owners with a swimming pool /spa pool are required to register their swimming pool / spa pool.
 
As part of the registration process, swimming pool owners are required to conduct a self-assessment of the swimming pool and state in the register that, to the best of their knowledge, the pool complies with the applicable standard. Failure to register a pool is an offence and can incur a maximum penalty of $2200. 
 
Registration of a pool can be completed online via the NSW Government Swimming Pool Register.  
 
If you are unable to register via the online service please complete the swimming pool registration and submit it to Council with the corresponding self-assessment checklist and registration fee.
 
For further information or a copy of the self assessment checklist please see http://www.swimmingpoolregister.nsw.gov.au/ or contact councils Environmental Health team on 9735 1222

When you buy a property with a non-compliant pool, you will have 90 days from settlement to fix any areas of non-compliance.
