German translation:Construction Design and Management Regulations
Explanation:
Lis is quite possibly right, I wouldn't want to argue with a new neighbor and I do not know anything about Camp, Dresser and McKee, but this British site refers to "Construction Design and Build Regulations" = "Construction Design and Management Regulations" = "CDM" and mentions "Health & Safety".

http://www.t-and-r.co.uk/THE_PRACTICE/the_practice.html

"The Practice operates a written Health & Safety Policy and works in Compliance with the requirements of the Construction (Design and Management) Regulations 1994"

http://www.t-and-r.co.uk/SERVICES/services.html

" For Clients' compliance with the requirements of The Construction Design & Build Management Regulations (CDM) we act as Planning Supervisor."

Using the query "Construction Design and Management Regulations" under AltaVista (English) there are over 600 sites, mostly British, using the full term and/or the acronym CDM.

The text is from a British building consultancy doing the same sort of work as "CDM" in the US are doing, so they would be competitors. As an abbreviation for relevant British regulations, it fits the context perfect.
