Between June and September 2019 the Scottish Government undertook an online consultation on its proposed Funeral Director: Code of Practice. The consultation was comprised of 18 questions, and collected information in both survey and open-ended comment format. The initial analysis of responses was conducted in late 2019, however the onset of the coronavirus pandemic in early 2020 resulted in a delay to publishing this analysis report.
The consultation focused on the sections of the draft statutory Code that would potentially have the greatest impact on funeral directors (assessed from understanding of the sector and stakeholder discussions during development of the Code). It also included four questions about funeral industry staff qualifications, which are not currently in the Code but are a key area of consideration for future regulation of the industry.
