After studying this course, you should be able to:

  • Describe who the client is and their role within CDM 2015
  • Detail the client's duty to make suitable arrangements for managing a project covered in regulation 4 and 5
  • Explore the duty that a client has to notify the relevant enforcing authority of certain construction projects covered in regulation 6.
