Richmondshire District Council

Registering cooling towers

All premises with cooling towers and evaporative condensers must register with us under The Notification of Cooling Towers and Evaporative Condensers Regulations 1992.

This is to identify areas that could potentially give rise to the spread of infectious disease, such as legionella, and to ensure preventative measures are taken to eliminate the infection risk to employees and the public. 

Information about legionellosis is available from the Health and Safety Executive.

An approved code of practice and guidance on Legionnaires' Disease is also available.

There are currently no cooling towers or evaporative condensers on the Richmondshire register.
