The Australian Standard for safety barriers for private swimming pools is currently under review. SPASA Australia is involved in the revision of AS1926.12012 Safety barriers for private swimming pools (AS1926.1) and is urgently seeking feedback from the industry.

The association has created a survey to enable the pool industry to easily provide feedback on the proposed changes. The deadline for the survey is 12 April.

“Proposed changes to AS1926.1 will ultimately be assessed in a cost-benefit analysis. In order for the swimming pool and spa industry to properly prepare its response, it is vital that we collect data reflecting any imposts or benefits the proposed changes may bring,” SPASA wrote in a communication to members.

SPASA assures those who complete the survey that individual responses will be kept confidential and won’t be shared.
