FAA Proposes $51,000 Penalty Against Dura Coat Products for Hamzt Violations

The Federal Aviation Administration
(FAA), Southern Region, has proposed to
assess a $51,000 civil penalty against
Dura Coat Products, Inc. of Riverside,
CA, for allegedly violating Department
of Transportation hazardous materials

The FAA alleges that on January 16,
2001, Dura Coat improperly offered a
fiberboard box containing a 16-ounce
metal container of “Antierra U” and a
32-ounce metal container of “Resimene
797,” 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.

Dura Coat offered the hazardous
materials for transportation when they
were not packaged, marked, classed,
described, documented, or in condition
for shipment as required by
regulations. Dura Coat 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.

Dura Coat 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.
