OAR 830-030-0030
Removal and Identification of Human Remains


In accordance with the identifying requirements established in ORS 692.405 (Identifying receptacle), the Crematory Authority must, immediately upon taking custody of human remains, verify that the human remains bear a means of identification attached as described in OAR 830-030-0000 (In General)(4), (5), (6) and (7). A Crematory Authority must not cremate human remains without an identifying metal disc unless death occurred in a state other than Oregon.


Documents identifying the human remains placed in the custody of a Crematory Authority prior to cremation must contain the following information:


Name of deceased;


Date of death;


Place of death;


Name and relationship of authorizing agent; and


Name of authorizing agent or firm engaging crematory services.


If the Crematory Authority takes custody subsequent to the human remains being placed within a cremation container, the Crematory Authority must satisfy itself that identification has been made as described in section (2) of this rule, and thereafter must place a similar appropriate identification upon the exterior of the cremation container.
