From 10 November 2014, the Pool Safety Council will disband and the pool safety licensing, compliance and disciplinary functions will be moved over to the Queensland Building and Construction Commission (QBCC).This transfer aims to reduce costs and improve regulation efficiency for the building industry.
For information about registering your pool with the pool safety register, visit the QBCC website.
The changes are part of the Government’s Ten Point Action Plan to overhaul building and construction industry regulation.
The Department of Housing and Public Works will continue to reduce the red tape, delays and costs associated with this type of building work for the building industry and home owners.
The Pool Safety Council would like to take the opportunity to thank all licensees for their commitment to the building industry by protecting the public health, safety and environment for Queenslanders.
For more information on the changes and how it will affect you as a pool safety inspector or home owner, please read the frequently asked questions for pool safety inspectors and homeowners.
