Cooling tower registration

Cooling towers and evaporative condensers have been associated with outbreaks of legionnaires' disease, which is a type of pneumonia. To assist with the identification of premises that could give rise to outbreaks of legionnella the Notification of Cooling Towers and Evaporative Condensers Regulations 1992 require the notification of cooling towers to the Council. The notified premises are kept on a register that the Council makes available to the Health and Safety Executive.

Register a cooling tower

You can register online via

There is no fee for the registration of cooling towers. Notifications are placed on file and the notified tower is added to the list.

If all relevant sections of the application form have been completed the Council aims to acknowledge registrations in writing within two weeks of receipt. If the required details have not been provided in the application form this may delay registration.

Will tacit authorisation apply?

The Council cannot refuse to register a notified cooling tower
