Regulations and Pool Safety

GOVERNMENT REGULATIONS


At Buyfencingonline.com.au we take Pool Safety very seriously, and that is why all of our fencing products and fence materials are of the highest quality and comply with Australian Standards. Whilst we provide great fencing, it is also very important that you comply with the Government Pool Safety Regulations and Legislation relevant to your state to ensure safety and avoid unnecessary expenses!

Below we have provided links to the Pool Safety Regulations and Laws for each state, we update these regularly, however this information changes regularly. Therefore it is very important that you check this information with relevant bodies before proceeding so that we can provide you with exactly what you require and that it complies with all relevant Australian Government Building Standards and Pool Safety Regulations. Please consider our information a guide, not authoritative or legal advice.
