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 businesses that are required to notify the Director 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.
