Changes to CPR signage in Queensland

Queensland has adopted the current national guideline for CPR signage, effective from 1 January 2017.

Previously, the state’s laws around CPR signage differed from the rest of Australia; however, the Queensland Government has now adopted the current national guideline, with all CPR signs installed from 1 January required to comply with the ANZCOR Guideline 8.

This change applies only to new signage. As long as existing signage was compliant at the time of installation, pool owners will not be required to replace it until it becomes illegible.

Current CPR signs can be installed up until 1 January; after this date, only signs complying with Guideline 8 will be acceptable.

The Queensland Government effected this change by way of the Building (Swimming Pool Safety — CPR Signs) Amendment Regulation 2016.
