Pool and spa owners are now required to register pools or spas with their local councils by 1 June 2020.
Owners will also be required to lodge a compliance certificate for their pool or spa barrier every four years.
New laws have been introduced to keep young children safe. Since 2000, 27 young children have drowned in private swimming pools and spas. In at least 20 of those cases, the non-compliance of the safety barrier was a contributing factor.
