ISPSC Development Schedule 

In July 2009, the ICC Board approved the development of the first comprehensive swimming pool code coordinated with the current requirements found in the International Codes to meet the requirements of the Virginia Graeme Baker Act to upgrade pool safety. The International Swimming Pool and Spa Code (ISPSC) will be developed with the support of the Association of Pool and Spa Professionals (APSP) and will encompass the design, installation and inspection of aquatic facilities (i.e., public swimming pools, public spas, permanently installed residential spas, above-ground/on-ground residential swimming pools, residential in-ground swimming pools, portable spas, aquatic recreational facilities, barriers for all residential pools and spas, water quality and suction entrapment avoidance for these facilities) based on the current ANSI (APSP) standards, technology and code provisions.
