Legislation

The legislation can be found here:

The Australian Standard (AS1926) is a document protected by copyright and cannot be reproduced here. Your local council should have a copy of the Standard available for viewing. The relevant versions are dated 1986, 2007 and 2012.

Council publications

Many councils produce excellent guidance publications that will assist a pool owner to understand the requirements of the legislation and the Australian Standard.
