Construction (Design and Management) (Amendment) Regulations 2000
These Regulations came into force on the 2nd of October 2000. The amendment to the Regulations concerns the definition and scope of the designer. A designer is now defined as:
"Any person who carries on a trade, business or other undertaking in connection with which he prepares a design"
The duties of a designer will also apply where the design is prepared by the designer's employees or anyone else under their control.
