All pools and spas in Queensland need to be registered.
Fines of up to $2277 may apply if your pool or spa is not registered. $2277 is the maximum penalty, not the fine amount.
Register your pool or spa
To check if your pool or spa is registered, simply search for a property on the pool register tool:
Enter your property details.
The register will validate the address entered and will advise if the pool or spa is registered and if there is a valid pool safety certificate attached to the property.
If your address is not recognised, try registering your pool using 'Lot on plan' option (above 'Street address' on the register).
Lot on plan details are recorded on your rates notice.
For example, if the rates notice describes the lot as 'Lot 1 on RP 234567', then enter '1RP1234' as the 'lot on plan', or 'Lot 2 on SP 345678' will be entered as '2SP345678'.
If the register states no pools or spas are recorded against this property, select 'alert the Pool Safety Council' and enter the number of pools and spas located on the property.
By using this method, your obligations to register your pool or spa will be satisfied even though the registration will not show up automatically on the pools register.
The information emailed to the department will then be uploaded onto the database.

Pool owners seeking a pool safety certificate need to contact a licensed swimming pool safety inspector to arrange an inspection. The register includes a list of licensed pool safety inspectors.
The pool safety register has been developed under the new pool safety laws. The register is being populated with local governments' records of regulated pools across Queensland.
You can now begin a search for a property and view details of the most recent pool safety certificate if one has been issued for that property.
Swimming pool safety inspectors must log in using the login box at the top right of this page to issue a pool safety certificate and update account details.
Individuals can apply to become a licensed pool safety inspector if they have completed a pool safety inspector course from an eligible course provider, passed the department’s pool safety inspector test, and have obtained the required professional indemnity insurance.
