Under the Notification of Cooling Towers and Evaporative Condensers Regulations 1992, persons in control of premises have a duty to notify the Local Authority in writing with details of 'notifiable' devices. Notifiable devices consist of Cooling Towers and Evaporative Condensers, except where they contain water that is not exposed to the air and the water and electricity supply are not connected. If a Tower becomes redundant or dismantled, this also should be notified as soon as possible.
The main purpose of the Cooling Towers and Evaporative Condensers Regulations 1992 is to help in the investigation of Legionnaires' Disease.
It is a legal duty to notify the Local Authority within one month of installation of any Cooling Tower or change to a Cooling Tower. Upon Receipt of the registration document the Cooling Tower will then be immediately registered by the Local Authority.
