The Federal Trade Commission has a new opinion letter on how the Funeral Home Rule applies to crematories. You can reach this letter (which is in PDF format) here.
The letter ends with the usual disclaimer of opinion letters:
But I find no fault with the reasoning of the staff on this issue.As you know, the views expressed in this letter are those of the FTC staff. They have not been reviewed, approved, or adopted by the Commission, and they are not binding on the Commission or any individual Commissioner. However, they do reflect the views of FTC staff charged with enforcement of the Funeral Rule. Staff Funeral Rule opinions are routinely posted on the FTC website at http://www.ftc.gov/bcp/conline/edcams/funerals/staffopinions.shtm.
