Mortuary and Cemetery Board > Web site
The State Mortuary and Cemetery Board was created in 1921. The mission of the board is to protect public health, safety and welfare by fairly and efficiently performing its licensing, inspection and enforcement duties; promoting professional behavior and standards in all facets of the Oregon death care industry; and maintaining constructive relationships with licensees and those they serve, and with others having an interest in the board’s activities.
In order to protect the public, the board works to ensure that all of Oregon’s death care facilities are properly licensed. The board employs a staff of six in its Portland office.
The board is self-supporting and derives its financing from licensing, examination, and a portion of death certificate filing fees. Financing is not derived from the purchase of a certified copies of a death certificates.
