The Construction (Design and Management) Regulations 2015 came into force on 6 April 2015 and they replace, subject to some transitional provisions, the CDM Regulations 2007.

For each party the CDM Regulations aims to improve health and safety in the industry.

These Regulations cover the management of health, safety and welfare when carrying out construction projects.

Under CDM 2015, organisations or individuals can be one or more dutyholder for a project.

The CDM Regulations 2015 have introduced the new role of the Principal Designer.

Principal Designers are designers appointed by the client in projects involving more than one contractor. They can be an organisation or an individual with sufficient knowledge, experience and ability to carry out the role.
