Information for Practitioners

Following the introduction of the Building Regulations 2018, the Practice Note on Swimming Pool and Spa Safety (PN-05-2018) was revised to help building practitioners understand the regulations.

A Fact Sheet has also been developed to remind practitioners of the mandatory notification stages for the construction of swimming pools and spas. Further details may also be found in the Practice Note on Mandatory notification stages and inspection of building work (PN-69-2018).
