Out of State Transport and Cremation Clearance

If you are planning cremation or removal of remains from the state of Utah, a cremation permit/transit permit and a review of the Death Certificate by the Office of the Medical Examiner is required as per Utah Code 26-4-29.   This review is done daily by investigators with the Office of the Medical Examiner. If there are no issues noted during the review, the death certificate will be cleared for cremation or removal.  If there are any issues noted, a hold will be placed on the death certificate and an investigation will be started by the Office of the Medical Examiner.
