1 FAA Hazardous Materials Regulations For Passengers 1 Federal Aviation Administration Presenters : Special Agents Monika Borsy & Carlos Berroya

2 FAA Hazardous Materials Regulations For Passengers 2 Federal Aviation Administration FAA Hazardous Materials Program In 1997 the Dangerous Goods/Cargo Security Program was established as a result of ValuJet Airlines Flight 592 crash into the Florida Everglades caused by the actuation of improperly prepared unexpended oxygen generators. In November 2002, the FAA reenergized its Hazardous Materials Program after the Department of Transportation split responsibility for the oversight of cargo security from hazardous material, with cargo security becoming the purview of the Department of Homeland Security and hazardous materials returning to the FAA from the Transportation Security Administration. As a result of this change in responsibility, the FAA is focused solely on the safe transportation of hazardous materials by air.
