Cooling towers

Register a cooling tower

All premises in Norwich where cooling towers and evaporative condensers are situated must be registered with the council. The law that covers this is Notification of Cooling Towers and Evaporative Condensers Regulations (1992).

You must notify us in writing, on the approved form, of any equipment on the premises and when there are any changes, including when a plant becomes redundant and is decommissioned or dismantled. Notification is free.

How to register

On receipt of your notification we will inspect the premises if necessary and details will be added to our cooling and evaporative condersers register.

We will inform the Health and Safety Executive concerning equipment on the premises where they have enforcement responsibility.

Purpose of notification

This is to ensure that the relevant enforcing authority can be satisfied that suitable control measures are in place to protect employees and the general public from the risk of infection by organisms such as legionella.
