Accommodation Providers

If you manage an accommodation business with a pool, the Qld Government has made it necessary for you to hold a current Pool Safety Certificate.

New pool safety laws came into effect from 1st December 2010 and shared pool certification is required by all Resorts, Hotels, Motels, Caravan Parks, Backpacker hostels and other Business establishments that sell room accommodation and have swimming pools.

Without a current  Pool Safety Certificate you will not be able to legally book overnight rooms (or van sites) unless you have an exemption, or choose to apply for an exemption.

The Queensland Government has recognised the enormous demand for pool inspections and has allowed a 6 month “Phase in” period for you to comply. This means that if you don’t have a Pool Safety Certificate displayed by 1st May 2011, you will not be able to earn an income!
