Case Study: Ensuring the safety of Dutch Swimming Pools

Ensuring the safety of Dutch Swimming Pools

According to Dutch Building Regulations, owners of indoor pools must demonstrate that steel installations and metal rigging are safe. Following a number of accidents, the Minister for Housing amended the legislation to ensure greater visitor safety by requiring accredited inspection bodies to survey the integrity of steel and metal structure.

This is stated in an amendment to the Building Decree 2012, published in the Official Gazette. (in Dutch)
