The control of Legionellosis is a legislative requirement under the UK Control of Substances Hazardous to Health (COSHH) Regulations. Every company that has a vehicle wash system should maintain a documented system to demonstrate how the risk of an outbreak of Legionnaires' disease is to be minimised.

This document provides supplementary guidance on the management and control of Legionella in vehicle wash systems, including recycling vehicle wash systems, once through vehicle wash systems, high pressure wash systems and tunnel washes.
