State Board of Funeral Directors

The State Board of Funeral Directors regulates the licensure and practice of funeral directors in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. The Board’s functions include the formulation of necessary rules and regulations for the proper conduct of the business or profession of funeral directing in order to safeguard the interests of the public and the standards of the profession.
In addition, the Board fixes the time and place for the examination necessary to obtain a license and, through its authorized inspector, conducts inspections of funeral homes.
 The Bureau of Professional and Occupational Affairs has begun migration to an upgraded phone system for all of its call centers. Because of this transition, there will be outages on September 9th and 10th where the Commissions and Boards will be unreachable by phone. Licensees will be alerted when outages may occur by prompts within the phone system. Thank you for your patience during this transition.
