Regulated Cooling Warm Water Systems - Legionella Control

Registration of Regulated Systems

It is a legal requirement under the Public Health Act, 2010 and the Public Health Regulation 2012 that owners or occupiers of regulated premises where a regulated system is installed notify the Council. 

The legislation specifies regulated systems to be:

  • Air-handling systems
  • Hot water systems
  • Humidifying systems
  • Warm-water systems
  • Water-cooling systems and their associated equipment and fittings

A dwelling is exempt, unless it has a water cooling system.  A dwelling is defined as a single occupancy dwelling that does not have common property and is not controlled by an owners corporation within the meaning of the Strata Schemes Management Act, 1996.
