Legionella Control Association

Legionella Control Association, in July 2005 the UK’s Code of Conduct Association changed its name to the Legionella Control Association or LCA as it it often referred.

The Code of Conduct for Service Providers was introduced in the UK in 1999 and is now operated by the LCA.

The conduct scheme, which is voluntary was originally developed by a working party drawn from the British Association for Chemical Specialities and the Water Management Society in close consultation with the Health and Safety Executive.

As its name suggests, the scheme is for service providers involved in the supply of goods and services relating to the control of legionella bacteria in water systems.

Approved Code of Practice and Guidance

The Health and Safety Executive’s (HSE’s) Approved Code of Practice document titled “Legionnaires’ Disease: The control of legionella bacteria in water systems ” (ACOP L8) makes specific reference to the Code of Conduct for Service Providers and says that whilst it has no legal status it may give guidance to consumers about the standards of service they can expect to receive.
