Identify main firms, on-site crematories Symbols in the Membership Roster alongside the funeral home name help you determine main firm members and members with on-site crematories. This icon M represents main firms and this icon C refers to members with crematories on the premises.

Golden Rule Standards Of Ethical Conduct The Standards of Ethical Conduct and Shipping Standards in the front of the guide are published for your reference or to refer to when meeting with a client family, staff member, colleague or fellow member.

Leadership Directory Leadership listings of the Board of Directors, Regional Chairpersons and committee members make it easy to get in touch with OGR’s volunteer leaders.

Standards of Ethical Conduct We believe in the validity and the application of

the Golden Rule and pledge our efforts to the pursuit of this standard in all our personal and professional relationships.

1

We pledge ourselves to attend to the preparations, care and disposition of deceased human bodies with compassion and understanding, having due regard and respect for the reverent care of the human body, to those bereaved, and the overall spiritual dignity of man.

2

We pledge ourselves to serve any deserving family in time of need, regardless of monetary consideration.

3

We will observe the laws governing the practice of funeral directing and abide by the codes of ethics of our professional associations, to the end that funeral service and this firm shall merit and receive the confidence of the public.

4

We will adhere to high standards of character, integrity and responsibility; we will make no false representations; we will be truthful in our dealings with the public and within the profession.

8

At the time that funeral arrangements are made, we will furnish each family with a complete and clear explanation of the charges for the services provided and merchandise selected, together with an itemization of monies to be advanced as an accomodation to the family and the agreed-upon method of payment of the account.

9

We will maintain and provide to the public complete facilities and equipment, including a highly competent and well-qualified staff.

10

We recognize the fact that funeral service is a practice affecting public health, safety and welfare; funeral directors are called upon to serve their fellow man during one of the most trying times a human being experiences. We pledge ourselves to the pursuit of our continuing education to the end that those who look to us may be well-served.

11

We will provide the public with full information pertaining to all aspects of funeral service, and we will cooperate with all others with whom we share caretaking responsibilities as we develop facts, research and knowledge, which will better enable us to meet the needs of those who mourn.

5

We pledge to respect all faiths, creeds and customs, and to be responsive to the needs of those we are called upon to serve.

6

We acknowledge our fiduciary relationship to the families we serve and pledge to hold their confidences inviolate.

7

Our charges, which are commensurate with services rendered, are based on our known costs of operation and shall be set forth in such a manner that the public may know what is included in such charges.

The Golden Rule

“ Service measured not by Gold, but by the Golden Rule.�

Golden Rule Shipping Standards

As a member of OGR, you have ready access to a community of independent funeral homes whenever you need to ship or receive the remains of a loved one for a client family. The following guidelines (protocols) are designed to help you through the shipping process.

The Federal Trade Commission Funeral Rule states in part: For forwarding or receiving human remains the GPL should list one price for each cost item and describe all services you will provide for the quoted price. The prices for these items should include all charges relating to each service, including any basic service fees and any facilities or equipment fees. The exchange of price information is solely for the purpose of compliance with the FTC rule, and member funeral homes shall not exchange pricing information with funeral homes with which they may compete for any other purpose. The following standards for direct shipping between Golden Rule funeral homes shall apply:

A. Communication

Shipping and receiving funeral directors have a continuing duty to communicate the details of the transactions to each other and to respond promptly to communications: 1. Where uniform response forms or procedures are available, they should be used. 2. Prices should be discussed at the earliest opportunity. 3. Communication should be made as early as possible following the death and, if possible, during normal business hours. 4. Details as to shipping method, estimated time of arrival, mode of transportation, carrier, container, etc., should be communicated to provide as much notice as possible.

B. Principal/Agent

The basic rules of agency shall apply in the shipping transaction: 1. The funeral director (whether the shipper or receiver) who will be providing the initial visitation is deemed to be the “principal” in the transaction.

2. The sale of the casket will be the primary responsibility of the principal. 3. It shall be the primary duty of the agent to comply with the principal’s requests.

C. Expediency

The shipping funeral director shall ship as promptly as possible, and shall communicate the carrier and estimated time of arrival to the receiving funeral director as soon as possible. 1. All shipping funeral directors shall include with the body the following information: a. Embalming report b. Burial transit permit c. Information on the death certificate, or information required to fill out a death certificate in the shipping jurisdiction d. Where the shipper is the agent, he/she shall include an itemized statement, in full, for the shipper’s services e. Application(s) for certified copies of the death certificate from the jurisdiction in which the death occurred or, in lieu of, the name, address and tele phone number of the location where a death certificate may be obtained and the fee

D. Financial

Shipping Price 1. Participating members will provide their Shipping Price taken from their General Price List which has been determined solely by the individual member in accordance with the FTC Funeral Rule. 2. The Shipping Price includes goods and services required by the FTC Funeral Rule. 3. A member may choose not to provide its Shipping Price in which case the shipping member should contact the proposed receiving member to ensure accurate information for the client family. 4. OGR and Golden Services Group are not a party to any shipping transaction and shall only be responsible for providing annual updates of the Shipping Guidelines and are not responsible for the actions of any individual member.

(800) 637-8030 ◄ 7


Golden Rule Shipping Standards

E. Payment Terms

Shipping and receiving funeral directors owe a financial responsibility to each other: 1. A receiving principal funeral director has a duty of payment to his or her agent within 30 days of shipping 2. A shipping principal funeral director who contracts with a receiving agent for the provision of funeral goods and services shall be responsible for payment within 30 days of shipment 3. Payment between the principal and the agent in a shipping transaction is not contingent upon payment by the party responsible to the principal

F. Containers & Clothing

Consistent with regulations of the state/provincial and federal requirements governing the shipping of deceased human remains, bodies shall be shipped: 1. In a container designated to protect the body during shipment. Special care shall be taken to protect clothing and casket interiors 2. In direct shipping circumstances with no attendant ceremonies, the deceased need not be clothed in burial garments, but should be properly covered, clothed or wrapped in a manner consistent with the protection of the deceased’s dignity

G. Cremated Remains

The following guidelines shall apply to the shipping of cremated remains: 1. Guidelines of Communication, Principal/Agent, Expediency and Financial apply to the shipping of

cremated remains 2. All cremated remains shall be shipped by a method designed to obtain a receipt from the recipient (example: certified mail with return receipt, etc.) 3. Shipping containers should be of a quality designed to protect the contents and safeguard their intact arrival. Double-wall containers, inner bags or bladders are encouraged. 4. The following information should be included with all cremated remains shipments: a. Name of the deceased b. Date of cremation c. Name and address of the crematory d. Certificate of cremation, or crematory statement (if required by the shipping jurisdiction) e. Transit permit

H. Complaints

Complaints and criticism by shipping or receiving funeral directors against the other should not be aired directly to the funeral purchaser or to the family. Following is the suggested complaint resolution: 1. Complaints or disputes should be resolved directly between the shipping and receiving funeral directors 2. If unresolved, mediation should be used 3. If steps one or two do not result in a resolution, a formal complaint against the member should be made to the OGR Executive Committee

Consumer Outreach Materials " OGR members have been asking for a national campaign to educate the public about the importance of meaningful memorialization for decades. Finally, here is your opportunity to send positive messages about funerals to residents in your community. The more members that participate, the louder our voice will be heard." —David Fry, OGR President Get your FREE materials at www.ogr.org/have-the-talk
