TM44 Air Conditioning Inspection Report Environmental Compliance Audit of Local Authorities

Basingstoke and Deane Borough Council did not have the information requested.

Dear Basingstoke and Deane Borough Council,
This request relates to UK Environmental Legislation, specifically TM44 Air Conditioning Inspection Reporting, which is mandatory for air-conditioned buildings. You as a Local Authority are duty bound to actively manage compliance in your Borough and to issue notices/fine non-compliant organisations.

Q. Have you set up a Trading Standards Officer to implement an active TM44 compliance programme. Provide that person’s name and details.
Q. If you have not set up your compliance programme, when do you expect to do so, and who is in charge of the process?
Q. What specific actions have you undertaken to check on all building operators with air conditioning in your Borough?
Q. How do you notify affected organisations, and how much notice do you give them before issuing a fine?
Q. The Government Non-Domestic EPC Register contains all records of existing TM44 Air Conditioning Inspection Reports, with expiry dates. Buildings not shown on the Register are non-compliant. Do you make use of the Register?
Q. The fine is £300.00 per building for non-compliance, do you reinvest fines and allocate to the Department issuing notices?

Yours faithfully,

Scott Davies

Dear Scott Davies

Thank you for your email.  Basingstoke and Deane Borough Council, as a
district local authority, has no responsibility for the compliance of TM44
Air Conditioning Inspection Reporting and, therefore, does not hold the
information requested.

The authority responsible for this function is Hampshire County Council
and your request should be referred to this authority.  For your
assistance, I have posted below a link to the Hampshire County Council
website (Freedom of Information pages):
