FAA Proposes Civil Penalties against Seven Companies for Allegedly Violating Hazardous Materials Regulations
The penalties range from $54,000 to $91,000
According to a press release, the FAA is proposing civil penalties ranging from $54,000 to $91,000 against seven companies for allegedly violating Hazardous Materials Regulations.
The organization has alleged that in the cases of New Chapter, Click Bond, All Tire Supply and Kretek International, the shipments were not accompanied by shipping papers to indicate the hazardous nature of their contents and were not marked, labeled or packed in accordance with the Hazardous Materials Regulations. The FAA also alleges the companies failed to provide emergency response information and failed to ensure their employees had received required hazardous materials training.
The allegations against Q.G. Investments, Harland Clarke and Quimica Bicentenario are the same except the FAA is not alleging a training violation by Q.G. Investments and is not alleging packaging violations by Harland Clarke and Quimica Bicentenario.
