Standards & Guidance

Information

Commitment 1 of the LCA’s 9 service provider commitments requires that our clients are made aware of their legal obligations with regard to Legionella Legislation.

The HSE leaflet: A brief guide for dutyholders – http://www.hse.gov.uk/pubns/indg458.pdf briefly describes the obligations of a duty holder with regards to Legionella.
