The State Government has introduced a mandatory pool and spa registration process for all pools and spa owners in Victoria. All pools and spas must now be registered by 1 November 2020. (On 26 May 2020 the Victorian Government extended the original registration date of 1 June 2020.)

The new laws apply to swimming pools and spas that are capable of holding more than 300mm (30cm) of water. This includes permanent pools, above ground pools, indoor pools, hot tubs, bathing or wading pools and some relocatable pools. Relocatable pools that do not consist of multiple components and do not require any assembly are not subject to the barrier requirements. An example of such a product is a small inflatable pool that requires no assembly other than inflation.
