We are responsible for keeping the register of premises where cooling towers and evaporative condensers are located within the city boundary under the Notification of Cooling Towers and Evaporative Condensers Regulations 1992.

This register is essential in helping the City Council, the Health and Safety Executive and Public Health England to quickly trace the possible point source location of a Legionnaires’ disease cluster or outbreak and to take rapid action to protect the public.

You must inform us if your commercial site uses a cooling tower or evaporative condenser, unless:

  • it contains no water that’s exposed to air
  • it's water supply is not connected
  • it's electrical supply is not connected

If you make any changes to your cooling towers or evaporative condensers, you must inform us immediately.

Registration is free and we aim to process and acknowledge your new registration applications or updated information within 21 days.
