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
