This week, Transport Canada will introduce regulatory changes that will require Canadian Air Transport Security Authority (CATSA) to follow new procedures for screening cremation containers. These procedures are similar to what has been in effect and practiced by the U.S. Transportation Security Administration (TSA) for several years now.
Complete information about the changes can be found on the NFDA website.
Shipping Remains Internationally? NFDA Has Resources For You
Shipping human remains to another country can be a confusing process given the varying requirements of the country receiving the remains and those of the airline on which the decedent is traveling. NFDA has compiled several resources to help you understand what is required so you can serve families as efficiently as possible.
NFDA is here to answer any questions you may have about shipping human remains internationally. Please contact a member of our International Relations staff for assistance:
Countries or airlines may change their requirements at any time. If you find that a country's or airline's requirements have changed from the information listed on the NFDA website, please contact Corey or Debbie so that they can update the website.
