From the 2008 National Electric Code (sorry, don't have the very latest version handy, so, take this w/ grain of salt):

680.7 Cord-and-Plug Connected Equipment. Fixed or stationary equipment other than an underwater luminaire (lighting fixture) for permanently installed pool shall be permitted to be connected with a flexible cored and plug facilitate the removal or disconnection for maintenance or repair.
This is further stated again in 680.21 Motors:
...
5. Cord-and-Plug Connections. Pool-associated motors shall be permitted to employ cord-and-plug connections. The flexible cord shall not exceed 900 mm (3 ft) in length. The flexible cord shall include an equipment grounding conduc- tor sized in accordance with 250.122 and shall terminate in a grounding-type attachment plug.
Of course, don't forget about 680.22:
...
B. GFCI Protection. Outlets supplying pool pump motors from branch circuits with short-circuit and ground-fault protection rated 15 or 20 amperes, 125 volt or 240 volt, single phase, whether by receptacle or direct connection, shall be provided with ground-fault circuit-interrupter protection for personnel.
