Replacing the Construction (Design and Management) Regulations 2007?

The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) is consulting on proposals to replace the Construction (Design and Management) Regulations 2007 (CDM 2007).

Key changes being proposed include:

  • replacement of the CDM co-ordinator role with a principal designer role within the project team;
  • introducing a duty on information, instruction, training and supervision to replace the duty to assess competence;
  • removal of the domestic client exemption and transfer of these limited duties to the contractor/designer; and
  • replacement of the ACoP with tailored guidance.

“Despite recent improvements, construction can still be a dangerous industry and the CDM Regulations are at the heart of how we are working to improve safety,” said HSE’s Construction Chief Inspector Heather Bryant. “The proposed changes are aimed at ensuring more people come home safe and well from their work and making the law simpler and clearer for employers to understand, particularly small businesses.”

The consultation will run until 6th June.
