When to register

All existing pools and spas should already be registered - the registration deadline was 1 November 2020. If you have missed the deadline, please ensure you register your pool or spa as soon as possible.

If your pool or spa was constructed after 1 November 2020, you must register your pool/spa no later than 30 days after receiving your occupancy permit or certificate of final inspection.

How to register


Step 1.Have your details ready

If possible, find out the date that your pool or spa was constructed and enter this in your online application. If you do not know the date, please enter an approximate date. Council will search current and historical records to determine the date.

If you have other relevant documentation showing the date of construction, such as a building permit or a certificate of final inspection, please attach this to your online application.

If your pool or spa was constructed on or after 1 November 2020, please have your Form 23 certificate of compliance ready to lodge at with the registration.

Step 2.Have your credit card ready

A one-off registration payment applies. This fee is set by the Victorian state Government to cover administration costs, including an information search fee. If you are also lodging your Form 23 certificate of compliance during the registration process, you will be charged an additional fee.

Please note we only accept Visa or MasterCard.

Step 3.Register online

Complete the online registration, attaching any relevant documentation.

Please ensure you keep the confirmation letter from us in a safe space. You will need to provide the pool inspector a copy of Council’s letter when they inspect your pool.
