NSW (COMPULSORY) SWIMMING POOL REGISTER
Under the Swimming Pools Amendment Act 2012 all pool owners are required to register their pool on the state-wide Swimming Pool Register. Closing date is 29 October 2013 and after this date fines apply. Find out how to register online at the NSW Government Swimming Pool Register website or in person at Council Chambers.
The following simple procedures will help swimming pool owners to register their pool on the NSW Swimming Pool Register from 29 April 2013 - 29 October 2013.
From 29 October 2013 authorised officers may fine pool owners if their pools are not on the NSW Swimming Pool Register. Fines are $220 and if referred to a court a fine of up to $2,200 may be imposed.
Therefore register now and save yourself the hassle. Registering online is free. If you can't access the online register, Council will be able to register on your behalf (a fee of $10.00 will apply).
