No ACoP for Construction Regulations

The Health and Safety Executive have finally abandoned plans to support the Construction (Design and Management) Regulations 2007 with an Approved Code of Practice (ACoP). The reason given is that this could not be shown to add value to the regulations.

In 2014 a consultation process found two-thirds of respondents supported a new ACoP and at that time HSE agreed to look at producing a shortened version.

There are a number of documents from the Construction Industry Training Board that explain the regulations, and HSE currently takes the view that this is sufficient but has undertaken to review the situation again in 2017.
