Federal Directive Number: CPL 02-00-150
Date of Directive: March 26, 2009 / November 9, 2009
This Instruction implements the OSHA Field Operations Manual (FOM), and replaces the September 26, 1994 Instruction that implemented the Field Inspection Reference Manual (FIRM). The FOM is a revision of OSHAs enforcement policies and procedures manual that provides the field offices a reference document for identifying the responsibilities associated with the majority of their inspection duties.

This Instruction was issued on March 26, 2009, and revised on November 9, 2009. It is anticipated that State submissions may be delayed, to incorporate all federal program changes in both the original and revised Instruction.
