Title: Federal Trade Commission's Funeral Rule
Url: http://www.ftc.gov/bcp/rulemaking/funeral/index.shtm
Publisher: United States. Federal Trade Commission.
Description: These guidelines from the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) are intended to help funeral providers comply with the FTC Funeral Rule. The Funeral Rule went into effect on April 30, 1984 and was revised in 1994. The Funeral Rule outlines requirements that specify that consumers be given accurate, itemized price information and various other disclosures about funeral goods and services. In addition, the Rule lays out prohibitions for funeral providers. Examples include not requiring the purchase of a casket for direct cremation and misrepresenting legal, crematory, and cemetery requirements. The layout of the site is very helpful with an index at the beginning which links to sections of the document - the full version of the funeral rule itself is also included.
