IMPORTANT LIC / CO REQUIREMENT

​To clear up any misunderstanding, although the Legislature removed the requirement that the Licensee-in-Charge (LIC) have a Crematory Operator (CO) permit from the Board's Series 1 Rule, W. Va. Code § 30-6-19(a) still requires the LIC to have a CO permit by July 1, 2024 or the licensee cannot be the LIC of your funeral establishment.​​​   In other words...You must have a Crematory Operator's License to be the Licensee in Charge..... it is still the law and it is in code, regardless that it has been taken out of rules.​
