Changes to Construction (Design & Management) Regulations
The Construction (Design & Management) Regulations (CDM) are the main set of regulations for managing health, safety and welfare of construction projects and are a legal requirement in the UK.
CDM 2015 replaced the Construction (Design & Management) Regulations 2007 (CDM 2007) from 6th April 2015.
CDM applies to all building and construction work.
CDM 2015 places legal duties on virtually everyone involved in a construction project. Those with duties are defined as duty holders.
Each duty holder has a responsibility to comply with the law to ensure projects are carried out in a way that secures health and safety.
