Consumer Protection is our Mission.
On behalf of the Director of the Division of Professions and Occupations, the Colorado Office of Funeral Home and Crematory Registration (“Program”) regulates funeral homes and crematories in the state of Colorado. Program activities include registration of funeral home and crematories, investigating complaints, and enforcing disciplinary actions against those who violate the Mortuary Science Code and the Office of Funeral Home and Crematory Registration Rules. The mission of the Program is to maintain the profession’s integrity and protect its consumers.
The Division is now called the Division of Professions and Occupations, effective August 8, 2012. To help our consumers and licensees more readily locate and utilize our services, the legislature passed House Bill 12-1055 during the 2012 legislative session. Please note, the Division of Professions and Occupations will still be housed within the Department of Regulatory Agencies (DORA). Services the Division currently offers will remain the same.
Funeral Homes and Crematories may be inspected by other governmental agencies. For example, crematories are subject to inspection by the Air Pollution Control Division of the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment. This is just one example of such inspection authority. Please be aware that other entities may have the legal authority to inspect your funeral home or crematory as well.
Legislation passed during the Legislative Session impacts the Division of Professions and Occupations. The Division is developing an implementation process at this time. Please check back in the near future to learn about any changes to rules, requirements and important deadlines.
