As the consultation period for reviewing the proposed document which seeks to replace the Construction (Design and Management) Regulations 2007 and withdraw the Approved Code of Practice (ACOP) expired on 6th June 2014, I have been informed by the HSE that the HSE Board are now considering the recommendations arising from the responses and that they will be publishing their response as soon as it has been agreed.
