    NEW CDM REGULATIONS 2015 CONSULTATION STARTS

    hselogo1HSE seek to replace CDM-C and extend law to domestic project clients

    IMPORTANT UPDATE AUGUST 2014 HSE publish consultation findings and way forward

     

     The long-awaited proposals to to revise CDM 2007 Regulations  (CD261)have been published this morning ( 31 March 2014).

    The draft Regulations propose significant changes in the following areas.

    • Structure – significant structural simplification of the Regulations;
    • ACOP scrapped – the replacement of the ACoP with targeted guidance;
    • CDM-C replaced – replacement with a new role, that of the ‘principal designer’;
    • Competence removed – removal of explicit competence requirements replaced with ‘skills';
    • Domestic projects included – addressing areas of TMCSD relating to domestic clients; and
    • Appointment threshold changed – the threshold for appointment of co-ordinators.

    The public consultation will be run in accordance with Government consultation guidance. HSE state:

    “Nothing is set in stone, but we need to present current thinking.

    The proposed regulatory package is subject to amendment in the light of consultation and HSE’s final proposals will be subject to approval by the HSE Board and Ministers.

    It is proposed, subject to Ministerial and Parliamentary scrutiny, that the revised Regulations will come into force in April 2015.”

    hselogo1HSE’s Construction Chief Inspector Heather Bryant said: 

    “Despite recent improvements, construction can still be a dangerous industry and the CDM Regulations are at the heart of how we are working to improve safety. The proposed changes are aimed at ensuring more people come home safe and well from their work and making the law simpler and clearer for employers to understand, particularly small businesses. 

    The Regulations and supporting guidance need to help those working on building sites to get health and safety right. That’s why it is important that we get a good response to the consultation, helping us build on the great support we’ve had from the industry during the development of these proposals.”
