Cooling towers and evaporative condensers

Table of Contents

The Notification of Cooling Towers and Evaporative Condenser Regulations 1992 require the notification of wet cooling towers and evaporative condensers to local authorities in whose area the equipment is situated regardless of whether the enforcing authority is the local authority or the health and safety executive. The regulations also require the notification to the local authority of the closure of the device.  More details can be found on the evaporative condensers page of the Health and Safety executive website.

The reason for the need of notification is the potential for legionella pneumophia bacterium (legionellosis) to be found in many recirculators and water supply systems. The main purpose of the requirement is to assist inspectors in investigating legionella outbreaks thought likely to have arisen from wet cooling towers or evaporative condensers.
