FAA Fines Paint Shipper $63,000 for Hazmat Violations
According to FAA’s press release, the company shipped a box of flammable paint that failed to comply with the HMR in the following ways:
- Lacked proper hazmat markings and labels
- Was not packaged in the proper condition
- Failed to include emergency response information
Companies that ship hazmat (a.k.a. “dangerous goods”) by air must comply with additional, more stringent restrictions.
