MEMORANDUM FOR:     ALL REGIONAL ADMINISTRATORS

FROM:               PATRICIA K. CLARK, DIRECTOR 
                   DIRECTORATE OF COMPLIANCE PROGRAMS

SUBJECT:            Favorable Decision in National Engineering &
                   Contracting Co. and Meroe Contracting and  
                   Supply v. OSHA, 6th Cir. No. 90-3080
On March 25, 1991, the Sixth Circuit issued a decision favorable to the Secretary in the above referenced case. This decision is significant because it approves OSHA's third-party-consent inspection practice and reaffirms that employers must comply with OSHA regulations even if they believe non-compliance is safe.

A copy of the decision has been enclosed for your review.
