FAA Proposes $70,000 Penalty Against Aveda Esthetique for Hazmat Violations

The Federal Aviation Administration
(FAA), Southern Region, has proposed to
assess a $70,000 civil penalty against
Aveda Esthetique of McLean, VA, for
allegedly violating Department of
Transportation hazardous materials

The FAA alleges that on November 26,
2000, Aveda Esthetique improperly
offered a fiberboard box containing 11,
5.5-ounce bottles of Aveda Exfoliant
and 17, 1.7-ounce containers of Aveda
Witch Hazel Hair Spray, both flammable
liquids, to United Parcel Service (UPS)
for transportation by air. Ground
handling employees at the UPS sort
facility in Louisville, KY, discovered
the shipment leaking.

Aveda Esthetique offered the hazardous
materials for transportation when they
were not packaged, marked, classed,
described, documented, or in condition
for shipment as required by
regulations. Aveda Esthetique also
failed to ensure employees were trained
to properly package and handle
hazardous materials, and did not make
available at all times the required
emergency response information.

Aveda Esthetique has 30 days from
receipt of the FAA notice to submit a
reply to the agency. This announcement
is made in accordance with the FAA’s
practice of releasing information to
the public on newly issued enforcement
actions involving penalties of $50,000
or more.
