Register a pool | Queensland Building and Construction Commission

SEQ flood recovery — tips for rebuilding and tradie register.


The building certifier who issues the final certificate for the new pool (form 17 or form 11) must provide details to the QBCC. Then the QBCC enters the certificate details into the Pool Register.

The register is free to access and you can also register your pool address.

How to register a pool

Register now on myQBCC

You can do this online through myQBCC by:

  2. clicking on the 'continue' button to register your pool details.

We conduct audits of properties and if you have not registered your pool you may face a fine.

We operate the Queensland pool safety register, which records:

  • every regulated pool in the state
  • pool safety certificates if one has been issued for a pool
  • building certificates if one has been issued for a pool.

You can search to see if your pool is registered. You will need the address and/or the lot and plan number. 

How to de-register a pool 

First you need to decommission your pool. Before commencing any work for the removal or decommissioning of a pool, you may need to obtain building approval from a private building certifier for the work. Check with your council if they have specific requirements on how to do this. 

Once you have decommissioned your pool, contact us to ask us to remove your pool from the register.

Please note, the decommissioned pool (including portable spa pools) must not be able to hold more than 300 millimetres of water.
