Content: Construction Design and Management (CDM) – A Plan for Success The UK’s CDM Regulation was first enacted in 1996 and the regulation imposed legal obligations on project participants, including clients, designers and contractors to contribute towards health and safety aspects at all stages of a construction project. In this seminar, John will outline the journey of CDM processes in UK when it was first introduced in 1995 and subsequently revised in 2007, and how CDM has altered the standard of construction works in the UK. The regulations remain an issue of debate in the UK industry in recent year as there is significant doubt whether CDM has added value in the construction industry. Additionally, John will also present the strategic directions and priorities of our Institution.
