A. No crematorium, cemeterian, memorial society, or other establishment, organization,
or person shall cremate a dead human body without having registered with the Board
as a cremator.
B. The Board shall prescribe the procedures for registration under this section. Such procedures shall include a requirement that any crematory registered with the
Board that engages in the practice of funeral services operate in compliance with
the provisions § 54.1-2810. However, nothing in this subsection shall require a crematory registered with the
Board to obtain a license as a funeral service establishment as long as the crematory
provides cremation services directly to or for a licensed funeral service establishment
only and not to the general public.
C. The Board may suspend or revoke any crematory registration or deny any application
for such registration, or refuse to issue or renew any such registration, if the Board
finds that the applicant or registrant has violated any provision of this chapter,
the Board's regulations, or if the Board finds the crematory has operated or is operating
in a manner that endangers the health, safety or welfare of the public.
