Cooling Towers and Evaporative Condenser Notification

Advice and information on how notify the local authority of cooling towers and evaporative condensers.

Licence summary

All premises where cooling towers and evaporative condensers are situated must be registered with the local authority under the Notification of Cooling Towers and Evaporative Condenser Regulations 1992. If these premises are in the district of South Somerset, you are required to register them with us. 

The main purpose of this is to identify potential areas that could give rise to spread of infectious disease e.g. Legionella and to ensure measures are taken to prevent the risk of such infection arising to employees and the public. 

You must notify our Food Safety team of any changes to the notification information within one month of the change in writing.

If the device ceases to be a notifiable device you must notify our Food Safety team in writing as soon as possible.

If that has not worked, if you are located in the UK, Consumer Direct will give you advice. From outside the UK contact the UK European Consumer Centre.
