    FAA fines 3 firms for hazmat violations

    China Express International of Changzhou on June 12, 2014, allegedly offered a shipment containing a lithium-ion battery pack to United Airlines for transport, which Customs and Border Protection officers discovered when it arrived at Chicago O’Hare International Airport. The company was assessed a civil penalty of $82,500 by the FAA.

    In each case, the FAA alleged the shipments 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.
    In addition, the FAA alleged the companies failed to ensure their employees received required hazardous materials training and did not provide emergency response information with the packages.
