  • Any company that ships hazardous materials, which includes wastes (i.e., "hazmat") by air can face significant civil or criminal penalties if it violates the hazardous materials regulations (HMRs). Unfortunately, many companies do not fully understand the HMRs or realize that they are subject to Federal Aviation Administration's (FAA) jurisdiction. Some companies also do not have in place proper hazmat shipping procedures or employee hazmat training.
