The Consultation document to review the HSE Legionnaires’ disease – the control of legionella bacteria in water systems Approved Code of Practice and Guidance L8 publication has been issued with deadline date for comments of 23rd August 2013.
This publication is currently presented as two parts. Part 1 is an ACoP and provides advice on complying with legal requirements concerning the risk from exposure to legionella bacteria. Part 2 provides technical guidance on the control of legionella in water systems.
The proposal is to revise Part 1 and to remove part 2, and make it available separately as a revised technical guidance. Both parts will be published by the end of 2013.
