HSE Legislation - Legionnaires disease

There has recently been a change in the HSE legislation regarding the control of legionnaires disease.

This change now means the legislation applies to residential lettings, whereas before these were not covered due to their size. The changes now mean that all residential lettings must have a legionella risk assessment carried out to assess the risk of the properties, which then allows for a suitable control scheme to be implemented.

Full details can be found in the revised Approved Code of Practice (ACOP) and guidance Legionnaires' Disease - The Control and Legionella Bacteria in Water Systems, a copy of which can be downloaded at http://www.hse.gov.uk/pubns/priced/l8.pdf
