This is carried out at least once every three years for properties with pools in the local authority’s area (section 22B of the Swimming Pools Act 1992).
A fact sheet released by NSW Fair Trading added that ‘in a strata or community scheme, all the lot owners jointly own any swimming pool or spa pool that is on common property’.
This means that the owners corporation (or body corporate) is responsible for ensuring such pools are compliant with the Swimming Pools Act 1992’.
The owners corporation is also responsible for registering a pool in a strata complex regardless of how many lots it comprises (Part 3A of the Act).
