Why notify us?
The primary purpose of cooling tower and condenser notification is ensure that the relevant enforcing authority can be satisfied that suitable control measures are in place to protect employees and the general public from the risk of infection by organisms such as legionella.
Who needs to notify?
Any business or premises that has wet cooling towers and/or evaporative condensers within the borough of Surrey Heath needs to notify us.
If a cooling tower and/or evaporative condenser becomes redundant and is decommissioned or dismantled, this should also be notified to us.
Cooling Tower Notifications are regulated by The Notification of Cooling Towers and Evaporative Condensers Regulations 1992.
