Company Says All Employees Have Passed Their Drug Tests
ST Aerospace said in a statement
Friday that they are "disappointed" with the FAA's press release
regarding a civil penalty proposal of $1.025 million against ST
Aerospace's U.S. facility ST Aerospace San Antonio, L.P.
"ST Aerospace takes our safety obligations seriously and has in
fact addressed the issues raised by the FAA way back in 2008," the
company said in response. "Although we are concerned about the
FAA's notice, we are also comfortable with the fact that we
co-operated with the FAA years ago to resolve their concerns and to
implement quality controls to ensure that we continue to comply
with the FAA's drug-testing standards."
According to ST Aerospace:
- Every one of the employees referred to in the FAA's press
release has passed their drug tests.
- There are effective controls in place to ensure continued
compliance with the drug testing standards found in the FAA's
- There are no allegations of current compliance issues.
The company says it intends to communicate with the FAA to
explain why their informal allegations are incorrect. Nonetheless,
they say they are treating this matter very seriously, and will
work closely with the FAA to resolve it.
