Under the notification of Cooling Towers and Evaporative Condenser Regulations 1992, the notification of wet cooling towers and evaporative condensers is required to Local Authorities in whose area the equipment is situated.
This is regardless of whether it is the Local Authority or Health and Safety Executive (HSE) that is the enforcing authority for the premises concerned.
Local Authorities have to make available to HSE information from notifications relating to equipment on premises for which HSE has enforcement responsibility.
The main purpose of this requirement is to assist inspectors in investigating outbreaks of Legionnaires' disease (2 or more confirmed cases) thought likely to have arisen from wet cooling towers or evaporative condensers.
