If you control non-domestic premises in Sunderland you must ensure that you notify us of any cooling tower or evaporative condenser (notifiable devices) on the premises.
Notification must be in writing (including by electronic means). The information required in the notification is directed by the Health and Safety Executive and will be kept on a public register.
You must also write to us to notify us of any changes to the notification information within one month of the change.
The Notification of Cooling Towers and Evaporative Condensers Regulations 1992 require that a person in control of non-domestic premises must inform the local authority in writing if they have a notifiable device on the premises. Notifiable devices mean cooling towers and evaporative condensers except when they are not connected to an electricity and water supply and the water within them is not exposed to the open air.
Any changes must also be notified.
Regulations are in place to assist with the control of legionella.
