CDM Regulations 2015

(CDM - Construction Design and Management - from April 2015  )

We have experience of being Principal Contractor under larger commercial type contracts where notification via a F10 to the HSE is required due to project size / duration / man hours / work type.

These Regulations now also apply to domestic works .

Generally they apply to any works in the following circumstances :

If work is scheduled to:

  • last longer than 30 working days and 
  • have more than 20 workers working simultaneously at any point in the project
  • OR exceeds 500 person days

The former CDM-Coordinator role has been replaced by Principal Designer or Principal Contractor. 
The new CDM Regulations impose duties on domestic clients as well as commercial clients, although domestic client duties will normally be transferred to the principal contractor/contractor, or, if the client wishes, to the principal designer. 

We can advise further on a specific project.
