Pool safety nonconformity notices and the appeals process

The QBCC has received complaints from pool owners about Pool Safety Inspectors (PSIs) issuing nonconformity notices that don’t comply with the requirements of the Building Act 1975

Whilst it is not mandatory for PSIs to use a Form 26 when issuing a nonconformity notice, a Form 26 includes all the details that are required.

A Form 26 also includes required information about the appeals process and how to contact the building and development dispute resolution committees, as a pool owner who disagrees with a nonconformity notice may appeal to the committees.

It is also important to remember that the committees registrar can only provide advice to home owners about how to lodge an appeal.
