Model Document Project Overview:

Development of Model Guidelines for Disposition of Human Remains

In continuance of The Conference Model Document series, the next project will focus on the development of guidelines for the various methods of disposition of human remains. Applications are now being accepted for an ad hoc committee tasked with drafting disposition guidelines. The committee will be comprised of representatives who have experience in the disposition laws/rules of their jurisdiction and will be able to devote time and value to the project.

Building on The Conference Model Practice Act, the disposition guidelines will promote standardization of terminology and regulation to better facilitate public understanding of the profession. This resource will serve as a guideline to regulatory officials, legislatures, and members of the profession seeking to adopt or amend the laws pertaining to disposition standards.
