About this determination
Note: This determination is subject to appeal.
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 The acceptable solution provided for in section 450A was revoked by way of Gazette notice on 27 April 2017.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 a swimming pool barrier consisting of a pool cover and either of two proposed alarm systems. The determination discusses management practices and human behaviour with regard to the Building Code obligations, and considers whether a waiver or modification of the Building Code is appropriate in the circumstances.
