FAA Proposes $162,500 Civil Penalty Against Airbus Defence and Space

The penalty is for alleged hazmat violations -- an undeclared shipment of two Protective Breathing Equipment Units flown from Seville to Miami in 2015.

The Federal Aviation Administration has taken enforcement action against Airbus Defence and Space of Madrid, Spain, proposing a $162,500 civil penalty against the company for violating the Hazardous Materials Regulations.

The DOT agency alleged that Airbus knowingly offered an undeclared hazardous material for shipment on a passenger-carrying aircraft from Seville, Spain, to Miami, Fla., on May 25, 2015. The FAA news release says the shipment contained two Protective Breathing Equipment Units, each of which contained a chemical oxygen generator with chemicals that could have caused or enhanced the combustion of other materials.

FAA alleges the shipment was not accompanied by shipping papers indicating the hazardous nature of the contents and was not properly packaged, marked, or labeled, and that Airbus failed to provide emergency response information with the shipment.
