Abstract

The swimming pool legislation is extremely various and uneven. This diversity is related to the different ap- proaches of individual health authorities, attributable to the different social, economic and cultural conditions of each country. In Italy the regulation about sanitary aspects for the construction, maintenance and control of swimming pools refers to the Agreement of January 16, 2003 among the Ministry of Health, the Regions and the Autonomous Provinces of Trento and Bolzano. The Agreement is not a jurisprudential act, but has the character of a document approved by constitutional organs of the same level, aimed to promote the harmonization of respective legisla- tions or the attainment of unitary positions. The controls and the related samples will be collected by Local Health Authority in compliance with criteria established by each region on the basis of specific control plans and supervision and in a manner and frequency that take into account the type of existing facilities inside the specific territorial areas, with particular attention to the critical points highlighted in the protocols of management and the self-prepared safety plans. In this regard, the working Group of Movement Sciences for the Health (GMSH) of the Italian Society of Preven- tive Medicine and Hygiene (SItI), proposes a checklist to complete during inspections routinely conducted by Local Health Authorities in swimming facilities. The aim is to have a single tool that can homogenize supervisory activities, procedures and types of controls in different realities, both locally and nationally.
