Legionella Control Association

The Legionella Control Association (LCA) is a voluntary organisation whose membership comprises providers of services and products concerned with the control of Legionella bacteria in water systems. The primary aim is to keep water systems safe and minimise the risk of cases of Legionnaires’ disease caused by poorly maintained systems.

About the Legionella Control Association

The LCA was founded in 1999 by the British Association of Chemical Specialities (BACS) and the Water Management Society (WMSoc).

A Recommended Code of Conduct for Service Providers concerned with controlling the risk of Legionella was formulated and launched. Companies and individuals were invited to pledge to a number of commitments making up the Code of Conduct with the specific objective of raising standards in the control of Legionella bacteria in water systems

Over time the Code of Conduct has been refined and there are now nine Service Provider Commitments. The Code requires service providers to draw up a Statement of Compliance addressing each Commitment and to establish and maintain appropriate management systems for those services that they offer associated with the control of Legionella.

The member company is given a site audit by the LCA every year and their process’s and systems are examined. If any non-conformances are identified they have 3 months in which to correct these after which time their name is removed from the LCA website.

Great service from Qube Environmental who provided a Legionella Survey/Risk Assessment for our medium sized offices in Shrewsbury. Very value added as Ashley explained the reasons why and how he was going to complete the survey in plain English. He kept it very simple and the survey's were easy to understand without the confusing jargon. Thank you for your service and support!
