(SENATE BILL No. 265. APPROVED JUNE 24, 1919.)

AN ACT to revise the law in relation to the regulation of the practice of - embalming. SECTION 1. Be it enacted by the People of the State of Illinois, represented in the General Assembly: It is unlawful for any person to practice, or to attempt to practice, embalming without a certificate of registration as a registered embalmer, issued by the Department of Registration and Education, pursuant to the provisions of “An Act in relation to the civil administration of the State government, and to repeal certain Acts therein named,” approved March 7, 1917, in force July 1, 1917. After the first day of July, 1920, it shall, also, be unlawful for any person to serve, or to attempt to serve, as an apprentice under a regis. tered embalmer without a certificate of registration as a registered apprentice, issued by the Department of Registration and Education, pursuant to the provisions of “An Act in relation to the civil administra. tion of the State government, and to repeal certain Acts therein named.” approved March 7, 1917, in force July 1, 1917. § 2. Either the embalming of dead human bodies or the preparation for transportation of human bodies dead of a contagious or infectious disease, constitutes the practice of embalming. No registered apprentice may independently practice embalming. A registered apprentice may, however, under the immediate personal supervision of a registered embalmer, assist a registered embalmer in the practice of embalming. § 3. This Act shall not apply to undertakers or others conducting funerals or burying dead human bodies, who neither practice nor attempt to practice embalming. § 4. A person is qualified to receive a certificate of registration as a registered embalmer: (a) Who is at least twenty-one years of age;

(b) Who is of good moral character and temperate habits; (c) Who has graduated from the eighth grade of a common school, approved by the Department of Registration and Education; or who has completed an equivalent course of study, as determined by an examination conducted by the Department of Registration and Education; (d) Who has graduated from a school of embalming which requires as a prerequisite to graduation the completion of a course of study of at least six months’ duration, approved by the Department of Registration and Education; (e) Who has studied embalming in this State under a registered embalmer for at least one year. However, no credit shall be given for the study of embalming in this State under a registered embalmer after the first day of July 1920, unless the applicant, during the period of study was a registered apprentice. The time spent in the study of embalming under an embalmer, registered or licensed under the laws of another state or territory of the United States or of a foreign country or province, may be credited on the period of study required by the provisions of this paragraph; and (f) Who has passed an examination conducted by the Department of Registration and Education to determine his fitness to receive a certificate of registration as a registered embalmer. A person is qualified to receive a certificate of registration as a registered apprentice: (a) Who is at least eighteen years of age; (b) Who is of good moral character and temperate habits; (c) Who has graduated from the eighth grade of a common school, approved by the Department of Registration and Education, or who has completed an equivalent course of study, as determined by an examination conducted by the Department of Registration and Education; and (d) Who has entered upon the study of embalming under a registered embalmer, or who has indicated his intention of doing so. § 5. Every person who desires to obtain a certificate of registration shall apply therefor to the Department of Registration and Education, in writing, upon blanks prepared and furnished by the Department of Registration and Education. Each application shall contain proof of the particular qualifications required of the applicant, shall be verified by the applicant under oath, and shall be accompanied by the required fee. § 6. The Department of Registration and Education shall hold examinations of applicants for certificates of registration as registered embalmers at such times and places as it may determine. The examination of applicants for certificates of registration as registered embalmers may include both practical demonstrations and written and oral tests, and shall embrace the subjects of anatomy, sanitary science, and the care, preservation, embalming, transportation and burial of dead human bodies. The Department of Registration and Education may, by rule, prescribe additional subjects for examination.

§ 7. Whenever the provisions of this Act have been complied with, the Department of Registration and Education shall issue a certificate of registration as a registered embalmer, or a certificate of registration as a registered apprentice, as the case may be. Any license or certificate of registration heretofore issued under the laws of this State, authorizing its holder to practice embalming, shall, during the unexpired period for which it was issued, serve the same purpose as the certificate of registration as a registered embalmer, provided for by this Act. § 8. Every holder of a certificate of registration shall display it in a conspicuous place in his principal office, place of business or employment. § 9. Every registered embalmer and every registered apprentice who continues in active practice or service, shall, annually, on or before the first day of January, renew his certificate of registration and pay the required renewal fee. Every certificate of registration which has not been renewed during the month of January in any year shall expire on the first day of February in that year. A registered embalmer or a registered apprentice whose certificate of registration has expired may have his certificate of registration restored only upon payment of the required restoration fee. Any registered embalmer who retires from the practice of embalming for not more than five years may renew his certificate of registration upon payment of all lapsed renewal fees. However, if any registered embalmer who has retired from the practice of embalming for more than five years, has been practicing embalming under the laws of another state or territory of the United States or of a foreign country or province, he may renew his certificate of registration upon the payment of ten dollars ($10.00). § 10. The Department of Registration and Education may either refuse to issue, or may refuse to renew, or may suspend, or may revoke any certificate of registration for any one, or any combination, of the following causes: (a) Conviction of a felony, as shown by a certified copy of the record of the court of conviction; (b) The obtaining of or an attempt to obtain, a certificate of registration, or practice in the profession, or money, or any other thing of value, by fraudulent representation; (c) Continued practice by a person knowingly having an insectious or contagious disease; (d) Habitual drunkenness, or habitual addiction to the use of morphine, cocaine or other habit-forming drugs. The Department of Registration and Education may neither refuse to issue, nor refuse to renew, nor suspend, nor revoke, any certificate of registration, however, for any of these causes, unless the person accused has been given at least twenty days’ notice, in writing, of the charge against him and a public hearing by the Department of Registration and Education. Upon the hearing of any such proceeding, the Director of Registra. tion and Education, the Assistant Director of Registration and Educa

tion and the Superintendent of Registration may administer oaths and the Department of Registration and Education may procure, by its subpoena, the attendance of witnesses and the production of relevant books and papers. Any Circuit Court or any judge of a Circuit Court, either in term time or in vacation, upon application either of the accused or of the Department of Registration and Education, may, by order duly entered, require the attendance of witnesses and the production of relevant books and papers before the Department of Registration and Education in any hearing relating to the refusal, suspension or revocation of certificates of registration. Upon refusal or neglect to obey the order of the court or judge, the court or judge may compel, by proceedings for contempt of court, obedience of 1ts or his order. -S 11. Upon payment of the required fee, an applicant who is an embalmer, registered or licensed under the laws of another state or territory of the United States or of a foreign country or province, may, without examination, be granted a certificate of registration as a registered embalmer by the Department of Registration and Education, in its discretion, upon the following conditions: (a) That the applicant is at least twenty-one years of age, of good moral character and temperate habits; and (b) That the requirements for the registration of licensing of embalmers in the particular state, territory, country or province, were, at the date of the license, substantially equal to the requirements then in force in this State. § 12. The fee to be paid by an applicant for an examination to determine his fitness to receive a certificate of registration as a registered embalmer is five dollars ($5.00). The fee to be paid by an applicant for a certificate of registration as a registered apprentice is one dollar ($1.00). The fee to be paid by an applicant for an examination to determine his preliminary education is two dollars ($2.00). The fee to be paid by an applicant for a certificate of registration as a registered embalmer who is an embalmer, registered or licensed under the laws of another state or territory of the United States or of a foreign country or province is ten dollars ($10.00). The fee to be paid upon the renewal of a certificate of registration is one dollar ($1.00). The fee to be paid for the restoration of an expired certificate of registration is two dollars ($2.00). § 13. The Department of Registration and Education may adopt reasonable rules and regulations relating to the enforcement of the provisions of this Act. § 14. Each of the following Acts constitutes a misdemeanor, punishable, upon conviction, by a fine of not less than twenty-five dollars ($25,00), nor more than two hundred dollars ($200,00): (a) The practice of embalming or an attempt to practice embalming, without a certificate of registration as a registered embalmer;
