If you intend to carry on a prescribed business, such as a crematorium, cemetery or funeral parlour, then you must notify the Director of Local Government at least one month prior to the commencement of your business.
The legislation defines a prescribed business as one which:
- handles, stores or transports human remains
- is involved in the preparation of human remains for interment or cremation.
Any equipment that is operated in a crematorium must comply with any guidelines issued by the Director of Local Government.
Please consult the Contact Officer for more information.
