§884.  Administration; promulgation of rules and regulations by board and crematory authorities

A.  The board may adopt, promulgate, amend, and repeal such reasonable rules and regulations in accordance with the Administrative Procedure Act as may be consistent with the provisions of this Chapter governing the cremation of human remains.  Such regulations specifically shall include the conditions under which the human remains of persons dying from an infectious, contagious, communicable, or dangerous disease can be transported from any portion of the state to a crematory for the purpose of cremation, and minimum standards of sanitation, required equipment, and fire protection for all crematories which the board may deem necessary for the protection of the public.

B.  A crematory authority may enact reasonable rules and regulations, not inconsistent with the provisions of this Chapter, for the management and operation of a crematory, the type of cremation containers it will accept, authorization forms required, witnesses to a cremation, and similar provisions.  Nothing in this Subsection shall prevent a crematory authority from enacting rules and regulations which are more stringent than the provisions contained in this Chapter.  Each crematory authority shall forward to the board a copy of the rules and regulations which it has adopted for the operation of its facility.
