Federal Trade Commission (FTC) FTC/Funeral Rule Compliance Summary

The promulgation of the amended Funeral Rule on January 11, 1994 has changed many elements of the Funeral Rule and funeral directors' responsibilities under that rule. NFDA has revised its FTC Funeral Rule Compliance Manual to address each of the changes made by the amended Funeral Rule which became effective July 19, 1994. We also have included new sample price lists in Chapter XI of the manual that show examples of how price lists may be constructed under the amended Funeral Rule.
