U.S. Federal Aviation Administration (FAA)The U.S Department of Transportation’s Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) proposes a $117,480 civil penalty against Holtkotter Leuchten Gmbh, of Lippstadt, Germany, for allegedly violating Hazardous Materials Regulations.
The FAA alleges that on Nov. 14, 2014, Holtkotter offered a box containing 9.6 liters of flammable liquid glue to UPS for air transportation. The package was subsequently transported on a Lufthansa passenger flight from Dusseldorf, Germany, to Chicago O’Hare International Airport.

Employees at a UPS processing center in suburban Chicago discovered the shipment.

The FAA alleges the amount of glue exceeded the quantity allowed on passenger aircraft and the shipment was not labeled for “cargo aircraft only.” The agency further alleges the package was not accompanied by shipping papers and was not properly marked and packaged. Furthermore, Holtkotter failed to ensure its employees received required hazardous materials training and did not include emergency response information with the shipment, the FAA alleges.

Holtkotter has 30 days from receipt of the FAA’s enforcement letter to respond to the agency.
