CDM 2015 Project Safety

CDM 2015

On the 6th April 2015, The Construction (Design and Management) Regulations 2015 (CDM 2015) replaced CDM 2007. The regulations govern the management of health, safety and welfare for construction projects.

To outline key roles and duties under the new Regulations, along with details of when a project is notifiable to the relevant authority, we have prepared a simplified eight page guide to CDM 2015, which you can download from this page.

Our guide is based on the full CDM 2015 regulations which can be viewed on the HSE website here 

Our guide is prepared for commercial projects. If you are planning a domestic project you can obtain more advice by visiting the HSE website here

Changes affecting the CDM Coordinator Role

Under the new CDM 2015 Regulations, there is no longer a CDM Coordinator role.

If you have a CDM co-ordinator working on a project that started before the 6th April 2015, a Principal Designer must be appointed to replace the CDM coordinator by 6 October 2015, unless the project comes to an end before then.

In the period it takes to appoint the Principal Designer, the appointed CDM coordinator should comply with the duties contained in Schedule 4 to the new CDM 2015 Regulations. These duties reflect the existing requirements under CDM 2007 for the CDM coordinator rather than requiring CDM coordinators to act as Principal Designers: a role for which they may not be equipped.
