Transitional Arrangements

Since the CDM Regulations 2015 came into force on 6 April 2015, there was a transitional period that ran from 6 April 2015 to 6 October 2015. If your project started before 6 April 2015 and you had not started the construction phase and a CDM co-ordinator had not been appointed, then it would have been the responsibility of the client to hire a PD as soon as they can.

If a CDM co-ordinator had been hired for the project before 6th October 2015 then a PD must have been appointed to replace the CDM co-ordinator by the end of the transitional period; 6 October 2015. This would not have been necessary if the construction project finished before 6th October 2015.
