the consultative document albeit with some minor amendments.

HSE’s stated objectives behind the proposed changes:
• Maintain or improve worker protection
• Simplify the regulatory package
• Improve health and safety standards on small construction sites
• Implement the Temporary or Mobile Construction Sites Directive (TMCSD) in a
proportionate way
• Discourage bureaucracy
• Meet better regulation principles
Construction (Design and Management) Regulation 2015
Summary of (main) changes;
1. Regulations apply to all Clients, whether or not a person is acting in the course of furtherance of a business Domestic Clients now included.
2. If a client is a domestic client, the duties in regulation 4 and 6 will be carried out by the contractor, the principal
contractor or the principal designer.
3. The role of the CDM co-ordinator has been omitted and is replaced with the new role of principal designer.
4. Principal designer and principal contractor must be appointed when there is more than one contractor.
5. Notification to HSE no longer triggers duties.
6. Notification to HSE is required when works are of a duration of greater than 30 days and on which more than 20
workers are working simultaneously or exceed 500 person days.
7. Removing the explicit requirement for corporate competence and replacing the explicit requirement for
individual competence.
Other points (guidance);
1. HSE Guidance (L153) produced and made available from HSE website
2. Industry Guidance produced and available from CITB website
3. HSE have stated that they intend to provide an ACoP in the future
4. HSE have stated that they intend to provide template CPPs for smaller works
HSE and Industry guidance is available from; http://www.hse.gov.uk/pubns/books/l153.htm

CDM 2015 - Key Changes
A. Changes to the threshold for the appointment of Co-ordinators
B. Replacing the CDM Coordinator (CDM-C) with a Principal Designer (PD)
C. Changes to the threshold for notification
D. Changes to how competence will be assessed
E. Domestic Clients now included
CDM 2015 - Key Changes
A. Changes to the threshold for the appointment of Co-ordinators
Appointment of co-ordinators required wherever there is more than one contractor.
Co-ordinators are now;
• Principal Designer
• Principal Contractor.
CDM 2015 - Key Changes
B. Replacing the CDM Coordinator (CDM-C) with a Principal Designer (PD)
The PD will be responsible for:
1. Planning, managing and monitoring the pre-construction phase
2. Ensuring that risks are eliminated or controlled through design work
3. Passing information to the Principal Contractor (PC)
4. Ensuring co-operation and co-ordination
5. Ensuring designers comply with their duties
6. Assisting the Client in preparing the pre-construction information
7. Preparing the health and safety file
CDM 2015 - Key Changes
c) Changes to the threshold for notification
Under the CDM15 a project is notifiable if construction work lasts longer than 30 working
days AND has more than 20 workers working simultaneously at any point in the project, or
exceeds 500 person days.
So in practice it would be possible to have a project on site for say 40 working days with
the maximum number of persons on site not exceeding say 12 (max possible 480 person
days) or 60 days with 8 workers (max possible 480 person days).
CDM 2015 - Key Changes
D. Changes to how competence will be assessed
Specific guidance in regards to the checking of competence was provided in the ACoP
to CDM2007.
It is not included in L153, instead the new guidance directs Clients to PAS91 and prequalification organisations such as members of SSIP.
