On 1 September 2008 the Swimming Pools Regulation came into effect, replacing the Swimming Pools Regulation 1998.
Spa pools are covered by legislation and should be separated by a child-resistant pool safety barrier.
All pools require a Resuscitation Chart to be displayed in a prominent position in the immediate vicinity of the pool.
The owner of a swimming pool has the responsibility to ensure that the pool is surrounded by a child-resistant pool safety barrier.
