OSHA requirements are set by statute, standards and regulations. Our interpretation letters explain these requirements and how they apply to particular circumstances, but they cannot create additional employer obligations. This letter constitutes OSHA's interpretation of the requirements discussed. Note that our enforcement guidance may be affected by changes to OSHA rules. Also, from time to time we update our guidance in response to new information. To keep apprised of such developments, you can consult OSHA's website at http://www.osha.gov.

Dear Mr. Crispell:
This is in response to your June 9 letter requesting that Mr. Joseph Nolan, or a member of his staff, speak at your professional development conference November 2-5, 1993 in Las Vegas.
We certainly appreciate the invitation for a speaker from this office but regretfully we must decline the invitation. Recent governmental policy prohibits our participation in events sponsored by for-profit firms except in rare situations approved by the Deputy Secretary.
Best wishes for a successful conference. Your professional support and interest in Occupational Safety and Health is very much appreciated.

Dear Mr. Clark:
North American Crane Bureau, Inc. sponsors a Professional Development Conference each year. This conference, scheduled for November 2-5, 1993 in Las Vegas, NV, is directed towards management personnel within the craning industry. Typically we have 200-250 supervisory personnel in attendance from across the United States.
The first day of this year's conference is entitled "Compliance Standards--Understanding and Applying the Regulations to Your Operation". We believe that Mr. Joe Nolan, or one of his highly capable staff, would be an excellent representative of the Federal government to discuss the Federal Compliance Standards. As a guest speaker, we would allocate approximately one hour on the first day of the conference, November 2nd, for this presentation. We would like to request the service of one of these OSHA representatives for our conference the day of Tuesday, November 2, 1993.
Upon your acceptance of this request please notify this office as we are currently in production of the conference agenda. Thank you for any consideration that you may give to this request for services.
Joseph R. Crispell
Executive Vice President
