 What We Answer

Frequently Asked Questions

When Do CDM Regulations Apply?
The Construction (Design and Management) Regulations 2015 (CDM 2015) apply to every construction project, including domestic and commercial projects that are being conducted by a contractor, even maintenance.
When Does A Project Become Notifiable To HSE?
A project only becomes notifiable when the construction period is expected to last longer than 30 working days, and it will have more than 20 workers working at the same time at any point in the building project or if the construction work has more than 500 person days.
Can You Fulfil The Role Of More Than One Duty Holder?
The short answer is - yes, you can. For example, you could fulfil the roles of both the client and the Principal Contractor if you were carrying out a self-build project.
What Are The Consequences Of Failing To Comply With The CDM Regulations?
Failure to comply with requirements under the Construction (Design and Management) Regulations 2015 (CDM 2015) remains a criminal offence that can be punishable with unlimited fines and, for individuals, imprisonment.
