2021/015: Regarding the compliance of an existing pool barrier
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 The acceptable solution provided for in section 450A was revoked by way of Gazette notice on 27 April 2017.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 existing pool barrier that incorporates a number of sliding wall panels and for which a code compliance certificate had previously been issued. The determination describes various pathways to establishing compliance for the purpose of section 162C of the Building Act 2004, and considers whether the pool barrier complies by any of those means. The determination also considers whether an exemption had been granted under the Fencing of Swimming Pools Act 1987.
