ICC's International Swimming Pool & Spa Code (ISPSC)

Latest Updates:

ICC has created a new discussion board for industry professionals to use to discuss the new International Swimming Pool and Spa Code (ISPSC).  This discussion forum may be used to network with others interested in the codes, and learn from those with experience in the industry.

WWA members should pay particular attention to chapters 3 & 6. In February, the WWA submitted comments on behalf of members during the first public comment phase. Additional public comment periods will open later this summer.


The ICC’s International Swimming Pool & Spa Code (ISPSC) was launched in July 2009 by the ICC Board in an effort to develop the first comprehensive swimming pool code coordinated with the current requirements to meet the rules of the Virginia Graeme Baker Act to upgrade pool safety. ISPSC will encompass the design, installation and inspection of aquatic facilities based on the current ANSI (APSP) standards, technology and code provisions.

The ISPSC is being developed by the Swimming Pool Code Drafting Committee (SPCDC). Ten chapters are planned covering general compliance, public pools, residential pools and spas.
