Legislation Update – CDM 2015 ACOP to Remain
It appeared that the HSE would drop the ACOP for CDM with the introduction of CDM 2015. However, the ACOP proved popular during the consultation phase, with many saying the document – without the ‘legalese’ of the regulation – is more user friendly.
An HSE board paper dated 13 August describing the outcomes of that consultation, indicates that they are now proposing to produce a short “signposting” version of the ACOP.
Although this paper is a proposal document only, the clock is ticking towards the expected introduction date of April next year.
