The Construction (Design and Management) Regulations 2015 (CDM 2015) came into force on 6 April 2015, replacing CDM 2007. This publication provides guidance on the legal requirements for CDM 2015 and is available to help anyone with duties under the Regulations. It describes:

  • the law that applies to the whole construction process on all construction projects, from concept to completion
  • what each dutyholder must or should do to comply with the law to ensure projects are carried out in a way that secures health and safety

CDM 2015 is subject to certain transitional provisions[3] which apply to construction projects that start before the Regulations come into force and continue beyond that date.
