About this determination


The determination considers whether the barrier to a swimming pool and spa pool complies with the Building Code to the extent required under section 162C of the Act.  The barrier was considered to be compliant with the Fencing of Swimming Pools Act at the time of construction and a code compliance certificate had been issued, but it later failed an inspection carried out under the new special provisions for residential pools.
