Cooling tower notification

The Cooling Towers and Evaporative Condensers Regulations 1992 requires that all premises containing a wet cooling tower, evaporative condenser or both must notify their local authority on an approved form. This does not include small air-conditioning units.

The main purpose of this notification process is to identify potential sources of risk and allow enforcing authorities to monitor and inspect them more easily.
