CEN proposal for the creation of a new project committee on "Funeral services"

 

The national standards body of Austria (ASI) makes a proposal for the creation of a new Project Committee on Funeral services to revise EN 15017 and align it with the current state of the art in the sector.

 

The currently existing European standard EN 15017:2005 „Funeral services - Requirements” was developed by the Task Force to the CEN Technical Board CEN/BT/TF 139 and was disbanded in 2007.

 

The new project committee will be established for a period of 3 years and during this time the existing EN 15015 will be revised and improved in the following directions:

  • Necessity to expand the scope of services to reflect the changes in the funeral services since 2005.
  • Improvements in the transnational (international) transport provisions of deceased persons.
  • Improvements in the requirements for storage.
  • Improvements in the cremation service provisions.
  • Indication of equipment needed for good funeral services provision.

 

The national stakeholders can provide their position on the proposal by 15 February 2016 to Kamelia Milanova, email: kamelia.milanova@bds-bg.org, tel: +359 2 81 74 539.
