Air Conditioning Inspection Report Environmental Compliance Audit (commonly known as an ACI TM44)

Roedd y cais yn llwyddiannus.

Dear Pennine Care NHS Foundation Trust,
This request relates to UK Environmental Legislation, specifically Air Conditioning Inspection Reporting, which is mandatory for UK hospital buildings which are air conditioned above a statutory minimum size.

Q. How many buildings do you occupy which have air conditioning. Provide building names.
Q. Who is the responsible person for ensuring that your buildings are legally compliant on this mandatory environmental matter? Provide the name, position, address, email address and direct telephone number of the responsible person.
Q. All reports are mandatorily lodged on a Government database. No reports are currently lodged or are out of date, you are therefore non-compliant. Has your Trust Board been made aware of this breach?
Q. Provide the name and email address of the ultimate person who has made the decision to ignore this Environmental Legislation.
Q. Provide the name and email address of each Trust Board Member.
Q. If you use a Facilities Management Company to manage compliance, who are they?

Paul Evans
