The Construction (Design and Management) Regulations 2015

The HSE has developed Draft Guidance on the Construction (Design and Management) Regulations 2015. The final versions of both the draft Regulations and guidance will be available on 6 April 2015.

The Regulations will come into force on 6 April 2015. There will be a transition period of 6 months from 6th April to 6th October 2015.

 

The key changes likely are:

  • Clients will need to appoint a Principal Designer and Principal Contractor
  • There will no longer be an official role of CDM coordinator
  • The domestic client is no longer exempt under the CDM regulations and has duties
  • Designers and principal designers must have suitable skills, knowledge and experience.
  • Client’s duty to provide pre-construction information
