FAA fines company $68K for Hazardous Materials Regulations violation

WASHINGTON, DC – The US Department of Transportation’s Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) proposes a $68,000 civil penalty against Unical Aviation Inc of the City of Industry, CA, for allegedly violating Hazardous Materials Regulations.

The FAA alleges that on July 21, 2015, Unical knowingly offered undeclared hazardous material shipments to FedEx for transport by air to Lenexa, Kan. The shipment contained three Protective Breathing Equipment Units, each of which contained an oxygen generator chemical. The chemical is an oxidizer, which can cause or enhance the combustion of other materials.

The FAA alleges that the shipment was not accompanied by shipping papers describing the type or quantity of the hazardous materials, was not properly packaged, marked or labeled as containing hazardous materials. The agency also alleges that Unical failed to provide emergency response information with it.
