||The Construction (Design and Management) Regulations 2007
(CDM 2007) came into force in Great Britain on 6 April 2007.
The new regulations are divided into 5 parts:
Part 1 deals
with the application of the Regulations and definitions.
covers general duties that apply to all construction projects.
contains additional duties that only apply to notifiable construction
projects, i.e. those lasting more that 30 days or involving more than 500
person days of construction work.
contains practical requirements that apply to all construction sites.
contains the transitional arrangements and revocations.
Under the new
regulations the onus is on the client and principal contractor to ensure that
their sub contractors are competent to undertake their roles. One of the key
underlying themes of CDM 2007 is the assessment of duty holders competency.
