FAA Proposes Penalties for Alleged Hazmat Violations

Three companies face penalties ranging from $66,000 to $82,500, according to the DOT agency.

The Federal Aviation Administration has alleged that three companies made shipments that were not accompanied by shipping papers to indicate the hazardous nature of their contents and were not marked or labeled in accordance with the Hazardous Materials Regulations. FAA also alleges the companies failed to ensure their employees received required hazardous materials training and did not provide emergency response information with the packages, according to its news release.

Because of these allegations, three companies face proposed civil penalties ranging from $66,000 to $82,500. They are:

  • China Express International Express Changzhou Branch ($82,500) for offering a shipment containing one Lithium-ion battery pack to United Airlines for air transportation.
  • Bridgewater International, Inc. ($67,070) for offering a shipment containing polyester resin, acetone, organic peroxide, and construction adhesives for FedEx for shipment by air.
