CDM Red, amber and green lists

Red, amber and green lists are practical aides to designers on what to eliminate/avoid, and what to encourage.

  • Red Lists: Hazardous procedures, products and processes that should be eliminated from the project where possible
  • Amber Lists: Products, processes and procedures to be eliminated or reduced as far as possible and only specified/allowed if unavoidable. Including amber items would always lead to the provision of information to the Principal Contractor.
  • Green Lists: Products, processes and procedures to be positively encouraged.
