The Federation of Burial and Cremation Authorities (FBCA) recently announced that they were endorsing the Funeral Furnishing Manufacturers Association (FFMA) coffin and casket protocol. This statement is in line with the agreement and support of ICCM and APPC Cremation Associations. This protocol has taken four years to complete.

FFMA have the majority of coffin manufacturers in the UK as members and have also now attracted manufacturers from all parts of Europe. The protocol will act as a guide to coffin production for everyone.  Health and Safety when handling coffins has to be a priority; the protocol will ensure this.

FFMA President David Crampton thanked the cremation society representatives and the the major funeral associations including SAIF for their help.
