Intruder Alarms

The Control of Noise (Code of Practice on Noise from Audible Intruder Alarms) Order 1981 gives guidance on how to reduce noise nuisance caused by faulty intruder alarms.  Allowing an alarm to ring unnecessarily may be considered a statutory nuisance and it is therefore good practice to comply with the Code.  Paragraph 5 advises that the alarm-holder should, within 48 hours of installing a new alarm system or of taking over an existing one, notify the local Police of the names, addresses and telephone numbers of at least 2 key-holders.  The Code also states that the alarm-holders should, at the same time, notify the local Environmental Health Authority where an alarm has been newly installed or where there has been a change of alarm-holder, as well as advising the local authority of the address of the police station to which notification of key-holders has been made.

Use this form for the purpose of notifying the Local Environmental Health Authority.
