Note: The Construction (Design and Management) Regulations 2015, SI 2015/51 came into force on 6 April 2015, replacing the Construction (Design and Management) Regulations 2007, SI 2007/320.

The CDM co-ordinator may be seen as an employer’s ‘right hand’ throughout a construction project. The co-ordinator is one of the first people who will be appointed by the client and the co-ordinator’s role is to assist the client in fulfilling many of its duties under the Construction (Design and Management) Regulations 2007, SI 2007/320, (the Regulations).
Please note that the term ‘client’ is synonymous with ‘employer’ as used in other practice notes in this context. ‘Client’ is used here to facilitate reference to the Regulations.
It will often be the case that the client may have limited knowledge and experience of construction projects and therefore the appointment of a competent co-ordinator will be an invaluable step in enabling compliance with the Regulations and helping to ensure a safer and healthier working environment.
The appointment of a co-ordinator by the client is only required on notifiable projects ie where the construction phase is likely to involve more than 30 days or 500 person days.
The client must make the appointment as soon
