Many people are unfamiliar with the funeral process and what actions to take when their loved one passes on. That is why we have prepared the following article to give you some guidelines on what to do when a death occurs.
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.
If death occurs at home
A house call by a GP or your family doctor has to be made to certify the cause of death. If the doctor is able to certify the cause of death, the CCOD can be issued by the doctor on the spot.
