Obtaining Certificate of the Cause of Death (CCOD)

A Certificate of the Cause of Death (CCOD) has to be obtained in order to register the death. Depending on where death occurred, the procedure for how this is done will differ.

If death occurs at the hospital
The CCOD will be issued on the spot by the attending doctor at the hospital if cause of death is known and natural. The CCOD can only be obtained after producing the NRIC of the deceased.
