Dear Amber Valley 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?
Thank you for your email. Please note that all matters concerning Trading Standards come under the jurisdiction of Derbyshire County Council. If you have not already done so, you can contact them by post at County Hall, Matlock DE4 3AG or email them at [email address] or telephone Call Derbyshire on 01629 533190. That being the case, I would inform you, in accordance with Section 1.1(a) of the Freedom of Information Act 2000, that the information you seek is not held by this authority.
