2015 International Swimming Pool and Spa Code
2015 International Swimming Pool and Spa Code is a comprehensive swimming pool code that establishes minimum regulations for public and residential pools, spas and hot tubs using prescriptive and performance-related provisions. Changes for the 2015 ISPSC include:
- The term pool and spa replaces aquatic vessel throughout the code. This change eliminates confusion and deletes an unnecessary definition.
- Fall protection guards for springboards that are greater than 5.0 feet (1.5 meters) above a pool deck are now required. The guards will significantly reduce injuries from falls from high springboards.
- Public pools are now required to have signage indicating how to reach emergency services by phone.
Coordinated with the current requirements in the International Codes and Association of Pool & Spa Professionals (APSP) standards.
