Regulations Workshops

August 16, 2012 Proposed Regulations Workshop

DATE: August 16, 2012
TIME(s): 10:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. – Cemetery LLC
12:45 p.m. – 2:45 p.m. – Funeral “General”

LOCATION: Department of Consumer Affairs
1625 North Market Blvd., Hearing Room S-102
Sacramento, CA 95834

The Bureau is holding a one-day workshop on August 16, 2012 to discuss three separate proposed rulemaking topics. This workshop, similar to the one held for cemetery maintenance standards in March 2011, will be an opportunity for all interested stakeholders to review the draft version of the regulations proposed for adoption, amendment, or repeal, and to suggest revisions to the content and language before the Bureau begins the formal rulemaking process.

The morning session from 10:00 to 12:00 will deal with enacting new proposed regulations to be added to Division 23 of Title 16 of the California Code of Regulations for Limited Liability Companies (LLC) in accordance with SB 1225 (Harman, Chapter 114, Statutes of 2008). For ease of reference and for processing purposes, the Bureau has identified the funeral regulation packages as “general” vs. “enforcement”. The first afternoon session after a 45-minute lunch break will focus on the amendments proposed to the existing “general” funeral regulations (Division 12 of Title 16 of the California Code of Regulations Sections 1209, 1214, 1216, 1221, 1255, 1258, 1258.1, 1258.2, 1258.3, and 1258.4). The second afternoon session after a 15-minute break will center around the amendments proposed to the existing “enforcement” funeral regulations (Division 12 of Title 16 of the California Code of Regulations Sections 1240, 1241, 1242, 1246, 1280, 1281, 1282, 1283, 1284, 1285, 1286, 1287, 1288, 1289, 1290, 1291).

Licensees are strongly encouraged to come and members of the public are welcome as well. Due to space limitations, we are asking that only one individual per cemetery or funeral establishment attend the workshop. The language as currently drafted for the Sections listed above is on our Web site www.cfb.ca.gov. Due to budgetary and staffing constraints, the Bureau is unable to supply copies to all interested parties; therefore, prospective attendees are asked to download a copy and prepare their comments in advance to ensure the workshop proceeds smoothly.

All meeting facilities are accessible to persons with disabilities, however, if you need reasonable accommodations as defined by the Americans with Disabilities Act, or if you have questions regarding the workshop, please contact Richard Hernandez at (916) 574-7870.

Thank you for your interest and anticipated participation.
