Legislation & Regulations

APSP Protects Your Interests

APSP constantly monitors legislation and regulation on the issues that affect the industry, but our continued success depends on you. Member input on what enhances or threatens businesses helps us chart an industry course for success. 

Why Should You Care?
The rules and regulations passed on a local and state level impact your ability to work in the industry. Without someone watching your back, laws and regulations could be passed that could threaten the future of the industry.

Members receive monthly e-mail alerts on pool, spa and hot industry legislation impacting their livelihood. You can find pool related alerts in the APSP e-newsletter and hot tub alerts in the APSP of IHTA e-newsletter.
