SPASA Australia is continuing to proactively lobby Standards Australia to make changes to the Australian Standard AS1926.1 Swimming Pool Safety Part 1: Safety Barriers for Swimming Pools. The CS-034 Committee is currently reviewing the Standard.
Cal Stanley, chairman of the committee, and Spiros Dassakis attended the Australian Standard AS1926.1 Committee meeting on 13 April on behalf of SPASA Australia following months of the committee’s hard work, research and industry collaboration, including a member survey.
A number of revisions to the Standard are being considered, including:
- addressing inconsistences — to reduce the incorrect interpretation by many regional regulators, restricting industry growth;
- removal and addition of clauses and notes — to reflect industry’s view on improved safety and practical building practices;
- updating diagrams — for further clarification and support of inspectors and certifiers;
- mechanical formatting of the Standard.
SPASA is encouraging members to participate in additional surveys in the coming weeks. For more information, contact SPASA Australia.
