New legislation for pool owners

With new legislation requiring pool owners to obtain Compliance Certificates for their pool fence (pool safety barrier) we have set up a team of qualified, registered and experienced Building Inspectors to assist you in meeting the requirements to keep your family safe. Covering all of metropolitan Melbourne, the Mornington peninsula, the Yarra Valley and Dandenong Ranges. We also carry out country runs to cover regional Victoria.

About Us

We are a team of highly qualified Building Inspectors who are all registered with the Victorian Building Authority.

Over 50 years combined Building Inspection experience including pool safety barriers requiring compliance for Building Surveyors, Pool Builders, Fence Installers, Councils and the Victorian Building Authority.

Pool Compliance Victoria is here to help you ensure your barrier complies with the new regulations with minimum hassle whilst eliminating unnecessary construction costs.

We are well versed in dealing with Council's to assist owners in the best ways possible. Our team members have not only worked in conjunction with Councils, we have Registered Building Inspectors who have worked for both Councils and the VBA.

How it Works

spa inspection          vba pool inspection
  • The pool owner registers their pool with their local Council - this is required to be done by the 1st November, 2020
  • Once the pool owner receives notification from Council about the build date of their pool, the owner organises an inspection of their pool safety barrier with a Registered Building Inspector or Registered Building Surveyor
  • Inspection is carried out and either barrier is compliant, a certificate issued to the owner who then submits that certificate to the Council or;
  • Items are found, direction letter sent to owner with items requiring attention
  • Owner has up to 60 days to fix items and have fence re-inspected, if all OK, Compliance Certificate issued to owner and owner submits that to council.
  • A third inspection may be required where there are still minor outstanding items, however a maximum of 7 days is allowed to rectify and re-inspect
  • Please note: If major non-compliance items are found during the inspection, the inspector is required by law to submit a non-compliance certificate to Council immediately for actioning by Council
  • Major non-compliance items are as follows:
  • a door or gate forming part of the barrier, when in the closed position, is able to be opened by a person who is unable to reach the opening mechanism for that door or gate
  • a door or gate forming part of the barrier is unable to be completely closed
  • a door or gate forming part of the barrier is unable to be completely closed
  • any part of the barrier is less than 1 metre in height measured above ground level from the approach side
