Clients: Fulfulling your obligations under CDM regulations

The 2016 Construction, Design and Management (CDM) regulations imposed a number of significant legal responsibilities on construction clients. Whilst architects, contractors and other consultants are mostly up-to-speed with the new regulations many construction clients are not fully aware of their obligations despite the fact that failure to comply may constitute a criminal offence. This is understandable as there has been a dearth of awareness training on the client’s role.

To address this RSUA is holding a half-day seminar on the Clients roles, duties and responsibilities under CDM(NI)2016. It is relevant to anyone who has, is or is likely to be a client for a construction project. It is relevant regardless of the size of the project and applies to clients of one-off and multiple projects.
