The Vechian Funeral Service Commission, typically abbreviated as VFSC, is an organisation in Vechia with authority over those who practice services related to death. They have authority over all independent practitioners within the nation; they control and facilitate zoning for graveyards, morgues, mortuaries, and funeral homes, as well as being the sole issuer of licenses within their included fields. The industry standards and regulations are decided by this organisation.

Licensing

VFSC is responsible for distributing funerary licenses, as well as licenses for coroners, embalmers, forensic scientists, cremators, coffin-makors, and other death- and funeral-related professions. The process for an individual to obtain a license is a heavily beaurocratic one, with multiple forms and applications needing to be filled out, signed, and submitted to the various sub-offices. It also heavily depends on the specific type of lisence to be obtained. It is possible to expedite the process with specific interference from higher government organisations.

Regulations

The regulations surrounding the death care industry are determined by the VFSC. The primary requirement for funeral homes or any place dedicated to the long-term storage of corpses to be registered with both the VFSC as well as their respective city's zoning committee. They also enforce specific regulations on how bodies can be treated and stored, including how the rooms they are stored in must be kept, as well as how the bodies themselves are maintained. Regulations on biohazard waste are controlled separately, by the Vechian Environmental Protection Agency.

Organisation Structure

The VFSC is a subsidiary organisation of the Vechian Government. More specifically, they fall under the branch of organisations dedicated to regulating specific trades and practices - other such organisations include ones such as the Vechian Council of Smithy. It is granted the authority over its specific field, but must conform with the regulations of the greater government.

Woooo, bureaucracy! /s   I like the example license - and it's fun that even coffin makers need to get one.
