About this determination


Note (added 11/08/2022): Please note that this determination incorrectly refers to section 450A of the Building Act 2004 as a compliance pathway for the pool barrier in this determination. The acceptable solution provided for in section 450A was revoked by way of Gazette notice on 27 April 2017. As the determination does not conclude that the pool barrier was compliant via the acceptable solution in section 450A, the outcome of the determination is not affected.

This determination considers the compliance of an indoor pool barrier to the extent required by section 162C of the Building Act.  The barrier incorporates bifold doors and a sliding door.  The determination discusses the compliance requirement in relation to an indoor pool that was exempt from having a barrier under the former Fencing of Swimming Pools Act and the means by which compliance can be established.
