Scottish funeral directors encouraged to attend regulation debate

Funeral directors from Scotland and beyond are encouraged to attend a special debate this Spring, which is set to help shape forthcoming regulation of the sector in Scotland.

The Burial and Cremation (Scotland) Act 2016 paved the way for a statutory inspector of funeral directors, new regulations and possible licensing – a first anywhere in the UK.

In response, the NAFD and SAIF have joined forces to deliver a one-day conference in the heart of Scotland this April featuring speakers from both associations and the Scottish Government.

Indeed, the NAFD and SAIF are now working collaboratively to monitor regulatory developments in Scotland and the potential impact on other jurisdictions of the UK.

The day will help shape the way the profession is regulated for the benefit of bereaved people and funeral directors.
