Cooling tower registration

All premises where cooling towers and evaporative condensers are situated must register with us under The Notification of Cooling Towers and Evaporative Condensers Regulations 1992.

Registration Summary

The prime purpose of this is to identify potential areas that could give rise to spread of infectious disease e.g. legionella and to ensure preventative measures are taken to eliminate the risk of such infection arising to employees and the public.

Notification must be in writing (including by electronic means) on a form approved by the Health and Safety Executive.

You must notify us of any changes to the notification information within one month of the change, in writing.

If the device ceases to be a notifiable device you must notify us in writing as soon as possible.
