(1) The State Mortuary and Cemetery Board shall issue a certificate of removal registration to a funeral establishment licensed in another state contiguous to Oregon with laws substantially similar to the provisions of this section for the limited purpose of removing dead human bodies from Oregon, prior to submitting a certificate of death, if the establishment that will make the removals applies to the board for a certificate of removal registration on a form provided by the board.

(4) The conduct of a funeral service practitioner or any other person employed by or acting on behalf of a removal registrant shall be the direct responsibility of the holder of a certificate of removal registration.

(5) For any of the causes described in ORS 692.180, or for violation of any death care rule or law in another state, the board may impose upon the holder of a certificate of removal registration or applicant any of the sanctions described in ORS 692.180. [1999 c.724 §6]
