CDM Consultant Services
With the advent of CDM2015 the duties of the Client, Contractor and Designer has changed. The major changes to the regulations, are: 
  • Domestic clients now have some CDM duties.
  • The CDM Coordinator role has been replaced by the Principal Designer role.
  • The project remains HSE notifiable if, in the construction phase, the project lasts more than 30 days, but under the new regulations, only if there are also 20 or more workers on site simultaneously at any point, as in the old regulations, it remains the case that a project is also notifiable if it lasts more than 500 person days in the construction phase.
  • The client must now make the HSE notification, not the CDM Coordinator, if the notification criteria is met.
  • The Client must now appoint a Principal Designer and a Principal Contractor if the project involves more than one contractor, not only when the criteria for HSE notification is met as under CDM 2007. 
  • It is no longer the case that a Construction Phase Plan and a Health and Safety File is only required for HSE notifiable projects, under the new regulations the Principal Contractor must prepare a Construction Phase Plan and the Principal Designer must prepare a Health and Safety File if there will be more than one contractor working on the project. 
If you are unsure how the change in Regulations affects your business, please feel free to contact us.  We are offering a full package of services to discharge both Client and Principal Designer duties.
