How to register your pool or spa
Complete your application
You need to complete the Register a Pool or Spa application (DOC 1.7 MB).
You will then need to register your pool online with your supporting documents.
Pay the fee
You will then need to pay the registration fee of $34.15.
Please note, if we need to find the construction date, we may charge an extra search fee of $50.70.
After you register
After you register, we'll let you know:
- when the pool or spa was constructed
- its barrier standard
- the date you must lodge a Certificate of Compliance with Council.
As the owner, you must get swimming pool or spa barriers inspected and certified by a registered building surveyor or inspector. Find out more about inspections on the Victorian Building Authority website. You can find an inspector there too.
If your barrier meets the safety standard, the inspector will give you a Certificate of Barrier Compliance. You must give this to Council within 30 days of its issue.

In line with Building Regulations, you need to pay a $22.10 fee to Council for each Certificate. Your next Certificate of Compliance is due four years after that. We'll let you know the due date.
If Council receives a Certificate of Pool and Spa Barrier Non-Compliance, in line with Building Regulations, you need to pay a $413.40 lodgement fee. We may follow up the non-compliance with the owner.
