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

We're waiting for Jessica Thomas to read a recent response and update the status.

Dear Lancaster City Council,

This request relates to TM44 Air Conditioning Inspection Reporting, which is mandatory for buildings which are air conditioned above a statutory minimum size. Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government has recently taken over compliance.

Q. How many buildings do you occupy which have air conditioning. Provide addresses?
Q. Who is the responsible person for ensuring that your buildings are legally compliant on the TM44 requirement? Provide the name, position, address, email address and direct telephone number of the responsible person.
Q. All reports are mandatorily lodged on the MHCLG database. No reports are currently lodged or are out of date, you are therefore non-compliant. When do you intend to rectify the situation?
Q. Air conditioning and air handling systems can cause increased risk of Covid-19 spread, have you included the TM44 into your return to work risk assessments?
Q. If you use a Facilities Management Company to manage compliance, who are they?

Yours faithfully,

Jessica Thomas
