The State Board of Morticians was established
as the State Board of Undertakers in 1902 (Chapter
160, Acts of 1902). In 1937, it was renamed the
State Board of Funeral Directors and Embalmers.
The Board received its present name in 1981
(Chapter 8, Acts of 1981).
Every funeral director and mortician in the Scare
must register with and procure a license from the
Board. The Board sets the standards for the practice
of mortuary science in the Scare and examines ap-
plicants for licensure. The Board renews licenses
every two years and has the power to suspend or
revoke any license. The Board makes regulations for
the enforcement of laws regarding funeral directing
and mortuary science.
Upon recommendation of the Secretary of
Health and Mental Hygiene and with Senate con-
sent, the Governor appoints the Board's twelve
members to four-year terms. Eight members are
practicing licensed morticians or funeral directors,
and four members are consumers who have no
training or substantial financial interest in the
profession. Authorization for the Board continues
until July 1, 2002 (Code Health Occupations Ar-
ticle, sees. 6-101 through 6-602).
