Why choose an Australian Funeral Directors Association Member?
- AFDA Members are bound by a strict Code of Ethics and Practice designed to meet both community needs and expectations in all aspects of service delivery. The Code is a reassurance to the community of sincere care and professional service, particularly at a time of uncertainty and distress for grieving families and relatives.
- Prospective member firms must comply with required standards for Premises, Equipment and Vehicles (PEV) before AFDA membership is granted. Re-accreditation is required every three years.
- AFDA develops and promotes professional standards in the funeral industry. In conjunction with its Membership, community groups and professional expertise, AFDA has developed several standards for industry practice. These are based upon fundamental and legitimate occupational health and safety, public health, legal and community standards. AFDA Member firms are required to abide by these standards.
