On 18 December 2020, the Competition and Markets Authority (CMA) published the final report of its market investigation into the funeral market (covering funeral directors and crematoria specifically). This is a significant contribution to the understanding of how this distinctive market operates.
The document attached sets out the government’s response to the final report and the CMA’s recommendations.
“While the government understands the challenges that the sector is currently facing, we accept the CMA’s findings on both the need for price transparency and improved quality standards in order to improve both competition and users’ experiences and choice.”
Facultatieve Technologies (FT) with 145 years of experience in cremation is the international market leader in the design, construction and maintenance of cremation and filtration equipment.
