A spa safety inspection is a comprehensive evaluation of a spa’s safety features and equipment. It is designed to identify potential hazards or risks in order to prevent accidents and serious injuries.
Pool Safe conducts mandatory pool barrier inspections to ensure that all existing Victorian swimming pools and spas meet the maintenance standards. Upon completion of the inspection, you will receive a certificate indicating that your spa barrier meets the necessary safety standards. This proves that your spa complies with Victoria’s pool fencing regulations.
While each state in Australia has its own specific regulations, it is essential that your spa is compliant with Victoria’s safety standards and regulations at all times.
To begin the spa inspection process, we encourage our returning and new clients to fill up the Request a Quote form in order to inform costs as well as set an appointed date for your spa inspection. Upon completion of the spa inspection, you will receive a certificate indicating that your spa complies with Victoria’s standard of safety and regulations.
Spa owners are responsible for ensuring that their spa meets the applicable safety standards and obtaining a pool safety certificate. In Victoria, it is essential for pools and spas to be inspected every four years to ensure they meet the relevant safety standards.

In accordance with the Victorian Building Authority, all swimming pools and spas in Victoria that are capable of containing water to a depth greater than 300 mm (30 cm) must have a compliant safety barrier to restrict access to the pool area by young children (under the age of five). These include in-ground spas as well as indoor spas. However, this is not applicable to spas that cannot contain a water depth of more than 300 mm as well as spas that are situated in a bathroom used for personal hygiene and emptied after each use.
Any spa deeper than 300 mm, including above-ground pools are required by law to have a permit. While most portable spas do not require certification or spa inspection, if a spa is deeper than 300 mm they must have a permanent safety barrier which obligates a building permit.
Spa owners are responsible for ensuring that their spa meets the applicable safety standards and obtaining a pool safety certificate.
If an inspector determines that your safety barrier is not compliant with the requirements, they will issue a certificate of barrier non-compliance or issue a written notice which must be complied within 60 days or the date and time they intend to reinspect the spa barrier.
Once certificates of non-compliance are received by the council, the building municipal surveyor will issue a barrier improvement notice or a notice under the Building Act 1993.
In accordance with the Victoria Building Authority, failure to comply with the non-compliance certificates or notices can result in a fee up to $1,849.20 (as of June 2023).
