In May 2019, the Independent Pricing and Regulatory Tribunal (IPART) sought feedback on the interment costs and pricing of interment services in NSW cemeteries. An Issue Paper was released by IPART, with a request for feedback prior to 7 June 2019.

IPART has now released an Interim Report for the review of interment costs and pricing. Feedback on the interim findings and recommendations, is required prior to 14 February 2020.

The Cemeteries and Crematoria Association of NSW (CCANSW) welcomes the IPART interim report and looks forward to further analysis of the death care sector to enable more informed community decision making.

CCANSW made a detailed submission on the Issue Paper and will provide a further submission on the Interim Report.

For further information about this media release or any other matter relating to the CCASNW, please contact the Secretary, Mary Reid.
