Notifiable project F10 form

The Construction (Design and Management) Regulations 2015 (CDM regulations) require that the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) must be notified of any project defined as construction under the regulations where the construction work is likely to last longer than 30 working days and have more than 20 workers working simultaneously at any point in the project, or exceed 500 person days. This can be done using an F10 form.

Regulation 6 of the CDM regulations requires that the client must give notice in writing to the HSE as soon as is practicable before the construction phase begins, or arrange for someone else to do this on their behalf.

The notice must include the details included in schedule 1 of the regulations:

Where details are not available (such as the details of the principal contractor) they must be provided when they are available, and in any event, before construction works begin.

The notice must also be clearly displayed in the construction site office in a comprehensible form where it can be read by any worker engaged in the construction work; and if necessary, be periodically updated.

HSE will take 10 days to process notifications by manual form. (Ref. HSE, F10 Manual input form frequently asked questions.) However, notification can now be carried out online by filling out an e-form and manual notification forms will cease to be available after 31 March 2015. Confirmation of receipt of an e-F10 form should be received shortly after submission.
