D D M M Y Y Y Y
Having inspected the swimming pool, I am not satisfied the pool is a complying pool under the Building Act 1975 for the reasons stated in section 4.
1 . To obtain a pool safety certiﬁcate:
• the action(s) in section 5 must be completed and
• a pool safety inspector must inspect the pool and be
reasonably satisﬁed that the pool complies with the pool
2. The pool safety inspector may only perform minor repairs
described in schedule 2B of the Building Regulation 2006
(or visit www.qbcc.qld.gov.au). Work valued at more than
$3,300 can generally only be carried out by a person suitably
licensed as a contractor by the Queensland Building and
Construction Commission (QBCC).
3. The pool safety inspector must notify the local government
if the owner does not ask the pool safety inspector to reinspect
the pool within three months after this notice is given. The local
government may take enforcement action, impose penalties or
take other action for noncompliance.
4. It is an oence under the Building Act 1 975 for the owner
to ask, within three months after this notice is given, a person
other than the following to inspect the pool for the giving of a
pool safety certiﬁcate:
• if the owner initially asked that inspector to inspect the pool—
the pool safety inspector named in this notice; or
• if the owner initially asked the local government to inspect
the pool—the local government.
Maximum ﬁnes of 50 penalty units apply for noncompliance.
If the ow
ner wishes to ask another person to inspect the pool
within three months after this notice is given, they may make
a written request to the QBCC. If the QBCC gives the owner a
written notice agreeing to the request, the owner can then
ask another person to reinspect the pool without committing
an oence. Written requests can be made to
the Queensland Building and Construction Commission at:
Post: GPO Box 5099, Brisbane QLD 4001

this notice to a development tribunal under the Planning Act
