“Your responsibilities and liabilities “

APSE is delighted to bring this CDM Refresher masterclass to the virtual classroom, in conjunction with our partners Pinsent Masons. The CDM Regulations (2015) legislation made important changes to the roles and responsibilities for the client, designer and contractor/principal contractor. The new role of Principal Designer was introduced as part of the regulations.
