Guidance Available for the Construction (Design & Management) Regulations (NI) 2016

The Health & Safety Executive Northern Ireland (HSENI) has agreed to provide simple information to small/domestic clients and developers to address any NI specific issues in relation to the up and coming Construction (Design & Management) (CDM) Regulations (NI) 2016.

The guide sets out, as simply as possible, the requirements of the regulations and sources of further information. HSENI are currently in negotiation with Local Council Planning Departments and Building Control Departments about including this information with application packs.

They would be keen that designers and contractors disseminate the information to potential clients where applicable to advise and educate.

Further information is available on HSENI's website and includes links to the already extensive and comprehensive information available in Great Britain.
