On 1 September 2008 the Swimming Pools Regulation came into effect, replacing the Swimming Pools Regulation 1998. This new regulation states that "AS1926.1-2007 Swimming Pool Safety Part 1: Safety Barriers for Swimming Pools" is now the standard for all child-resistant barriers surrounding/restricting access to a pool.
NOTE: You should rely on the Regulation to inform you rather than solely rely on "AS1926.1-2007" as the Regulation excludes/restricts some clauses of "AS1926.1-2007" for pools in NSW.
