Work Outside Great Britain

CDM (GB) Knowledge Base

CDM applies to work carried out within Great Britain (note; not the UK) plus certain activities in its territorial sea. This includes construction work on a British offshore wind farm for instance, if it is within the territorial sea.

People working abroad have no duties under CDM, but the law still applies to clients in Britain who choose to use designers or others who may be working abroad. These clients must make sure

  • That those engaged are Competent
  • That health & safety issues are properly considered
  • That normal CDM information is provided

These matters can be covered in contracts.
