How Often Should You Review Your Legionella Risk Assessment?

If you operate a facility with hot and cold water systems, you must assess your legionella management plan on a regular basis, particularly if your consumption, water tank, or the law changes. In most cases, risk assessment reviews and evaluations should be performed at intervals determined by the features of your water systems.


Legislation may occasionally adapt to conditions like the COVID-19 epidemic, in which numerous properties are suffering minimal utilisation due to lockdown or new regulations. As a result, it's critical that business owners evaluate the information on a frequent basis. Legislation can be difficult to really understand at times, so if you are unfamiliar with it and want assistance, contact Assured Water; we're always here to assist you in understanding your duties.

How Often Should You Review The Risk Assessment?

There is no hard and fast rule on how often you should do a legionella risk assessment review. We recommend that you have one at least every two years, but in many situations, it is prudent – and may be a legal requirement – to have them more regularly.


Legionella is a serious health danger, and an epidemic will harm your image and lead to punishment if the requirements are not followed. You will be ACOP L8 compliant as long as your management plan is constantly up to date.


Assured Water has fully certified and professional water safety specialists who will conduct these evaluations for you, providing you with peace of mind and clarity.
