FAA Proposes $53,550 Penalty Against Coty US for Hazmat Violations

The Federal Aviation Administration
(FAA), Southern Region, has proposed to
assess a $53,550 civil penalty against
Coty US LLC of New York, NY, for
allegedly violating Department of
Transportation hazardous materials

The FAA alleges that on December 19,
2000, Coty improperly offered a
fiberboard box containing 27 two-ounce
glass bottles of perfume, a flammable
liquid, to Federal Express (FedEx) for
transportation by air. Ground handling
employees at the FedEx sort facility in
Atlanta, GA, discovered the shipment

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

Coty 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.
