A Look At The 2022 Model Aquatic Health Code (4th Edition)

A Look At The 2022 Model Aquatic Health Code (4th Edition)

CDC partnered with public health officials, aquatics sector experts and researchers to create and update the Model Aquatic Health Code (MAHC). The MAHC aims to prevent illness, injury, disability and death by addressing the design, construction, operation and management of public aquatic facilities. The MAHC’s vision is to promote healthy and safe aquatic experiences for everyone in the United States. For the 4th edition, 530 change requests (CRs) were submitted to the Council for the Model Aquatic Health Code (CMAHC). CRs were then discussed at the third CMAHC Vote on the Code Conference and voted on by CMAHC membership. Of 521 CRs, CMAHC membership voted to pass 326 (63 percent). As of March 2022, CDC provisionally accepted 302 (93 percent) of the passed CRs. In this session, you’ll hear more details about the latest edition that will be released this fall. Key revisions in this edition address topics such as enclosure requirements (e.g. height minimum), cyanuric acid as a closure item, lower minimum pH, secondary treatment (including filtration) and standardizing terms (e.g. rope and float line). Also to be discussed will be MAHC updates under consideration for the 5th edition include addressing surf venues and artificial lagoons, further developing CRs that did not pass membership vote (e.g. tall platform safety) and standardizing terms (e.g. use of “pool” versus “aquatic venue”).
