ICCM Corporate Membership – Working in the best interests of Burial & Cremation Authorities and Companies

In January 2005 the membership of the Institute voted overwhelmingly for the introduction of a Corporate arm. Similarly, the membership of the Confederation of Burial Authorities (CBA) voted to merge into ICCM Corporate. The aim of the new structure of the Institute is to provide a single voice to represent the industry. 
In more recent times the Association of Burial Authorities (ABA) also took the decision to merge with the Institute. 

Manufacturers and suppliers may become members of ICCM Corporate as an Associate Corporate Member and all those providing cemeteries and/or crematoria should apply online here.

The Institute has also formulated a Code of Practice for Corporate Members.
