Swimming Pools and Spas

The NSW Government requires owners of swimming pools and spas register them and ensure that they are compliant with government standards and regulations.

The Swimming Pools Act 1992 and the Swimming Pools Regulation 2008 work together with Australian Standard 1926 (AS1926) to establish the safety standards for ‘backyard’ swimming pools. These documents have been updated a number of times and, as a result, apply differently at different points in time.
