Consultation on revised CDM

The Health and Safety Executive is in the process of consulting on proposals to revise the Construction (Design and Management) Regulations 2007, with a timetable of having new regulations in force in April 2015.

One major change is to do away with the role of CDM Co-ordinator as this function appears not to have worked as expected and has involved bureaucracy and costs without contributing to the process. Instead there will be an enhanced role for the project designer. There are no radical changes to the regulations’ technical requirements, but the Approved Code of Practice would be replaced by a guidance document.
