The Queensland Government has introduced new pool safety laws aimed at further reducing the incidences of drowning and serious immersion injuries of young children in swimming pools.
These laws affect new and existing pools.
Pool owners have until 30 November 2015 to comply with the new pool safety laws, or earlier if they sell or lease their property before this time.
More information on Pool Safety can be obtained by visiting the Department of Housing and Public Works website.
As part of these newly introduced pool safety laws, residents are required to have their swimming pool registered.
