Assigning CDM roles and duties

What you will find on this page

Help with assigning CDM roles and duties to existing common management arrangements in the entertainment industry.

What you should know

The processes and management systems in the entertainment industry can be significantly different from conventional construction procurement. There may also be differences in management approach within the industry. 

Recognising these differences, the following section illustrates how CDM roles and duties can be applied to existing common management arrangements and processes in the four main industry sub-sectors:

  1. TV/film and broadcasting
  2. Theatre and performing arts
  3. Live events (festivals, music, sport, cultural events)
  4. Exhibitions/trade fairs and conferences

Note: for some events, there may be a read-across between sub-sectors e.g. between outside broadcasting and live events.
