Abstract This decree makes additions to the French Labour Code which lay down the conditions under which inter-company occupational health, safety and working conditions groups must be set up: building sites in excess of 10,000 worker-days and involving more than ten firms (including sub-contractors) and/or self-employed workers. The new articles also set forth the modus operandi of the inter-company groups: membership, chairmanship, periodicity and convening of meetings, agenda, minutes, rules of procedure. They also define the sanctions incurred in the event of violation of these measures. The new provisions are applicable to building and civil engineering sites on which design work started on or after 6 May 1995; for operations commenced prior to this, they are applicable from the beginning of the building phase to projects on which construction work is not due to commence before 1 Jan. 1996. Section II of the decree of 19 Aug. 1977 (CIS 78-864) on inter-company health and safety groups, and the decree of 9 June 1977 (CIS 77-2069) on special health and safety committees are revoked.
