Assurity Consulting - Leading the way with Legionella risk assessments

05 October 2017

From the 1st October 2017 Assurity Consulting became the first organisation in the UK to uniquely combine accreditations to Primary Authority Assured Advice and International Standard ISO/IEC 17020:2012 (against Water quality. Risk assessments for Legionella control) and for their Legionella risk assessments.

Specifically the Assured Advice relates to “the competence and ability of Assurity Consulting to undertake suitable and sufficient Legionella risk assessments in accordance with the relevant legal requirements” and is offered in a co-ordinated partnership with the City of London Corporation (CoLC).

Toby Thorp, Environmental Health Officer at CoLC said, “Assurity Consulting are an organisation we’ve worked alongside on many occasions at significant properties within the Square Mile and we were pleased to be able to formalise that partnership through our new Co-ordinated Primary Authority agreement.

"This should benefit the business, their clients and regulators alike through increased confidence in the systems being used to deliver client services and then additionally provide consistency in enforcement.”

The Primary Authority Scheme which started in 2009 was developed with the aim of ensuring that ‘local regulation is consistent at a national level and sufficiently flexible to address local circumstances.’

This is achieved by allowing ‘an eligible business to form a legally recognised partnership with a single local authority in relation to regulatory compliance.’

Director of Market Development at Assurity Consulting and lead on the project Greg Davies commented, “Being able to offer Assured Advice for our Legionella risk assessments is a further significant addition to an already extensive list of quality assurances and accreditations we hold to confirm our competence and expertise.

"It is also only the beginning of the process as we look to secure Assured Advice status to recognise the quality of more of our services so we can offer our customers additional peace of mind.”
