WASHINGTON, DC – The U.S. Department of Transportation’s Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) proposes a $126,000 civil penalty against RAE-I.T. Asset Management, LLC, of Ocala, Fla., for allegedly violating the Hazardous

Materials Regulations.

The FAA alleges that on May 24, 2017, the company offered a shipment containing 220 lithium ion cell phone batteries weighing approximately 36 pounds to UPS for shipment by air.The shipment was forbidden because it was not packaged in a manner to prevent sparks or a dangerous evolution of heat. 

Workers at the UPS cargo facility at Louisville International Airport in Kentucky discovered the shipment.

The FAA alleges the package was not accompanied by a shipper’s declaration of dangerous goods and was not properly classed, described, packaged, marked, labeled or in the proper condition for shipment. The agency also alleges that RAE-I.T. Asset Management, LLC, failed to ensure that each of its employees received required hazardous materials training, and failed to provide emergency response information with the shipment.

RAE-I.T. Asset Management, LLC, has 30 days from receipt of the FAA’s enforcement letter to respond to the Agency.
