Do the CDM Regulations apply to projects with a domestic client?

Domestic clients have no duties under the CDM 2007 Regulations. However, a domestic client could attract duties under Part 4 of the Regulations if they control the way in which construction work is carried out. For example, a client who provides an unsafe means of access and insists upon its use, or who decides how the work will be done (possibly unsafely) would, to some extent, then be controlling construction work.
