$130,000 in Penalties Proposed for Hazmat Violations
The Federal Aviation Administration is proposing penalties of $78,000 and $52,000 against a U.S. company for allegedly violating the Hazardous Materials Regulations in connection with separate air shipments of a corrosive rust stain preventer and a flammable gas. The FAA alleges that these shipments were not properly marked, labeled, packaged or accompanied by shipping papers indicating the amount, type and hazardous nature of the materials. The FAA further alleges that the company failed to provide emergency response information with the shipments. The company has 30 days to respond to the FAA’s enforcement letters.
