If the tables already exist in your test database, then you may have to disable the constraints before importing the data. Normally, I drop the objects before importing them anew in a test environment. The quickest way to accomplish that is to drop the schema owner and re-create it.
You should not get constraint violations if the tables do not exist because the constraints will not be created until after the data has been imported.
