FAA Proposes $227,500 Civil Penalty Against Dover Chemical

Alleged Mishaandling Of Hazardous Materials During Air Transportation

The FAA is proposing a $227,500 civil penalty against Dover Chemical Corporation of Dover, Ohio, for alleged violations of federal hazardous materials regulations.

The FAA alleges that Dover Chemical offered sulfur monochloride, a hazardous material, to United Parcel Service for transportation by air from Hammond, Ind., to Dover on June 15, 2010. The hazardous materials regulations prohibit carriage of sulfur monochloride aboard any type of aircraft. The chemical's vapors are poisonous if they are inhaled.

Dover Chemical allegedly offered the material when it was not packaged, marked, classed, described, labeled or in condition for shipment as required by regulations.  UPS workers at the carrier's sorting hub in Louisville discovered the shipment because it had leaked.

Dover Chemical has 30 days from receipt of the FAA's enforcement letter to respond to the agency.
