The International Conference of Funeral Service Examining Boards (Conference or ICFSEB) is pleased to introduce its Conference Model Practice Act for Funeral service. The Conference Model Act serves as a guideline to the legislature, regulatory officials, and members of the profession seeking to adopt or amend the laws governing mortuary arts and funeral services. The purpose of this Model Act is to facilitate the protection of the public by providing legal mechanisms that establish and provide for the enforcement of uniform standards. The provisions and language contained in this Model Act represent currently accepted standards, practices and terms and represents the collective wisdom of the funeral service regulatory community.
The Conference Model Practice Act Review committee conducted a thorough review of the Model Practice Act for Funeral Service (MPA) in 2016 and 2017. The amended version was adopted on March 1, 2017 at the 113th Annual Meeting.
