Published on : Thursday, June 29, 2017

U.S. Federal Aviation Administration (FAA)The U.S Department of Transportation’s Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) proposes a $63,000 civil penalty against Terrazzo USA & Associates, Inc., of McLoud, Okla., for allegedly violating the Hazardous Materials Regulations.

The FAA alleges that on June 23, 2016, Terrazzo offered a box holding a container of corrosive liquid Master Flex Flexible Hardener to UPS for shipment by air. Workers at the UPS sort facility in Austin, Texas, discovered the shipment was leaking.

The FAA alleges the package was not accompanied by shipping papers describing the material, and was not properly marked, labeled, packaged, described or in the proper condition for shipment to prevent the release of hazardous materials.


The FAA further alleges Terrazzo failed to ensure its employees had received required hazardous materials training, and failed to include emergency response information with the shipment.

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