Cooling Tower Notification

Notification is a legal requirement in order that the locations of cooling towers and evaporative condensers (notifiable devices) are known. This allows potential sources of infectious diseases, such as legionella, to be identified and also ensure that the necessary preventative measures are in place to eliminate the risk of such infection arising to employees and the public.

If you control non-domestic premises within the Moray area you must ensure that you notify us of any cooling tower or evaporative condenser on the premises. You must notify us of any changes to the notification information within one month of the change, in writing.If the notifiable device becomes redundant or is dismantled this must be notified to us in writing as soon as possible.
