Section 9718. (Amended by Stats. 2000, Ch. 568, Sec. 199.)
Cite as: Cal. Bus. & Prof. Code §9718.

The bureau may, in accordance with its rules and regulations, authorize interments in cemeteries for which there is no currently valid certificate of authority outstanding if the bureau finds that rights to interment therein will otherwise be impaired. However, nothing in this section authorizes sales of lots, vaults, or niches by cemeteries for which there is no currently valid certificate of authority. Interments permitted under this section shall be conducted by persons authorized by the bureau in accordance with its regulations, and Section 9768 shall not be applicable to such interments.

The bureau or its representative shall be entitled to inspect and copy any cemetery records necessary to the performance of interments under this section, and any person having custody of those records shall permit inspection and copying thereof for that purpose. The bureau may apply to the superior court for the county in which the cemetery is located for an order temporarily transferring custody of cemetery records to it for purposes of this section.
