ACoP L8 Compliance

Legionella grow in warm 20 to 50 degrees centigrade, but reproduce fastest in stagnant water at 35 to 46 degrees centigrade.

At the heart of the Health and Safety Commission’s ACoP L8 for legionella control is the need to assess the entire water system.

Sampling and Analysis

Normally, the routine analysis of domestic water systems is not recommended by the ACoP L8.

However, under certain circumstances, such as where the temperature regime cannot be maintained, the testing for Legionella and other organisms is seen as being essential in the overall control of a system. In the case of cooling systems, the sampling and analysis for Legionella Pneumophila is a quarterly requirement. 

Tank Cleaning and Disinfection

Cleaning and disinfection of cold-water storage tanks and complete water systems are carried out to BS8558 standards or the ACoP L8 by our trained technicians.

All of our work carries a Completion Certificate.


Our Solution to combatting Legionella

We can come along to your business and carry out a risk assessment and highlight areas of potential risk and provide you with a legionella risk assessment report.

This will make recommendations for an effective monitoring and maintenance program, complete with asset registers to avoid a legionella outbreak.

Where a risk assessment is already in place, we can come and carry out an audit.
