CDM Regulations 2007 Procedures Manual, 3rd Edition (1444302566) cover image


This Procedures Manual provides a documentation system which has been developed by a practising CDM co-ordinator for use with the Construction (Design and Management) Regulations 2007.

It addresses the full range of obligations on all parties for compliance with the statutory requirements and features:

  • flow charts
  • checklists
  • model forms

The revised Third Edition of the Manual reflects the extensive changes to the CDM Regulations 2007, including:

  • the new role of CDM co-ordinator
  • wider and more onerous duties on clients
  • changes to the design process
  • wider requirements for competence
  • integration of duty holder roles

The Manual also takes account of the 2007 Approved Code of Practice. It will function as a control document for quality assurance purposes.
