BAS PU – Basic /English course

NEW! There is a new provision release to be prepared at: AFS 2020:1 Workplace design. This constitutional provision does clarify the roles for Clients, BAS P  and BAS U. It takes effect by jan 2021, and all construction projects need to be updated. We have the provision in English prepared for you. 

Every construction site must have an appointed Principal Designer and a Principal Contractor – in Swedish: BAS P and BAS U; one for the planning phase and one for the construction phase.

Those roles require certain competence and knowledge within a number of provisions, experience and training.

Course Information

This course gives you the competence to work as BAS-P or BAS-U, if you have relevant experiences from building and civil engineering.

At any Project within building and civil engineering, there must be a co-ordinator for work environment for both planning (BAS-P, Principal Designer) and the performing phase (BAS-U, Principal Contractor). This requirement is due to even smaller works and service jobs. It’s the Client who appoint the co-ordinators, and must have verified training, competence and experience enough for the role in relation to the work intended. This requirement is due since the 1:st of January 2011. The Client can let a Contractor or a clients’ delegee take all such responsibilities if the work is done independently and there is a written contract regarding the responsibility transfer. BAS P/U is the Swedish version of a Principal Designer and Principal Contractor, previously known as CDM co-ordinator.


The course is intended for customers, project leaders or others with responsibilities within building and civil engineering work and as well thou who’s supposed to work with BAS P or BAS U.


The course will give you basic knowledge regarding the work environment responsibility and how the related questions are to be considered during planning, conducting and further usage, within a Construction and civil- and engineering work.
