Pool Gate Inspection Laws in Queensland

  1. 1. Pool gate inspections in the Queensland, Australia, and area are run by laws that look at both used and new pools. The rules can be a bit different depending on whether a pool has been in the ground a while or if it is a brand new one. More info on: http://ec64.com.au/pool-safety-inspections-gold-coast/pool-gate-inspection/
  2. 2. The new rules in Queensland give owners until the end of November 2015 to bring their pools into compliance. All pools must be altered or replaced to meet the safety standards that are clearly laid out by the Queensland Development Code Mandatory Part 3.4. More info on: http://ec64.com.au/pool-safety-inspections-gold-coast/pool-gate-inspection/
  3. 3. These rules include both indoor and outdoor pools with places that rent rooms, as well as general living quarters like mobile home parks and caretaker residences. More info on: http://ec64.com.au/pool-safety-inspections-gold-coast/pool-gate-inspection/
  4. 4. Those new pools must display a CPR sign that is fully approved by the Australian Resuscitation Council, while portable pools and spas that are over a certain size must be fenced in now. More info on: http://ec64.com.au/pool-safety-inspections-gold-coast/pool-gate-inspection/
  5. 5. For any new pools created in Queensland, building approval is required before any new pool is actually built. A certified builder will be brought in to approve the plans and any safety barrier being built or set up. More info on: http://ec64.com.au/pool-safety-inspections-gold-coast/pool-gate-inspection/
  6. 6. Follow-up inspections are absolutely mandatory according to Queensland law and need to take place within six months. After that first inspection another follow up is required within two years to be in line with the new regulations.
