Consultation Summary

NameConsultation on replacement of the Construction (Design and Management) Regulations 2007
DescriptionThis consultation seeks views on HSE's proposal to replace the Construction (Design and Management) Regulations 2007 (CDM 2007) and withdraw the Approved Code of Practice. In line with an evaluation of CDM 2007 and a recommendation in Professor Löfstedt's report Reclaiming health and safety for all: an independent review of health and safety legislation, the proposed revision is intended to aid clarity and reduce bureaucracy. The ACoP would be replaced with a suite of tailored guidance aimed at particular sectors, in particular smaller projects. Two thirds or more of fatal injuries in construction occur on small sites.
