Swimming pools, spas and other swimming facilities

The purpose of the guidelines is to set the minimum safety requirements for spas and swimming pools, increase their safety and intensify the monitoring of safety under the Consumer Safety Act and prevent accidents.

Swimming beaches owned and maintained by municipalities and other parties are also included in the scope of application of product safety legislation (the Act on the Consumer Safety, 920/2011). The purpose of the Act is to prevent any potential risk to consumers (municipal residents). The level of safety enjoyed by residents must be equal regardless of which organisation – enterprise, municipality, church or other organisation – acts as the service provider and whether a fee is charged for the service or not.
