Helpful information about cremation in Puerto Rico
The Federal Trade Commission has deemed that the "Funeral Rule" applies to funeral providers in Puerto Rico. The jurisdictional reach of the Funeral Rule extends not only to states, but also to any territory of the United States. Therefore, because Puerto Rico is a U.S. territory, the Funeral Rule applies equally to funeral providers in Puerto Rico just like it does to the 50 states and D.C.
(The Funeral Rule, enforced by the Federal Trade Commission (FTC), makes it possible for you to choose only those goods and services you want or need and to pay only for those you select, whether you are making arrangements when a death occurs or in advance.)
