The new CDM regulations came into force on April 6th 2015. There are several changes that will affect the duties of designers. This includes the removal of the role of CDM co-ordinator and the introduction of the new role of Principal Designer. The new regulations extend the prescribed duties into more work with domestic clients.
Principal Designers will be required to co-ordinate H&S aspects of the design in the preconstruction phase and liaise with the Principal Contractor to help in the planning, monitoring and co-ordination of the construction phase.
