The Model Aquatic Health Code (MAHC): A Model Public Swimming Pool and Spa Code
The Model Aquatic Health Code (MAHC) is guidance based on the latest science and best practices to help ensure healthy and safe experiences in public pools, hot tubs, and splash pads (in places like apartment complexes, hotels, gyms, and waterparks). The MAHC is all-inclusive and addresses the cutting-edge design, construction, operation, and management needs of today’s public aquatic facilities.
Health jurisdictions can use all or parts of the MAHC to create or update their codes to reduce the risk of illness and injury at public aquatic venues. Aquatics sector leaders can also use the MAHC, even if their jurisdiction has not yet adopted it.
