Step 1 Contact us Email firstname.lastname@example.org or call us at 888-966-3330 to speak with a representative. We will connect you with a Compliance Specialist to guide you through the process, making sure you have all the tools and support you need to help you successfully complete the appropriate application and supporting documentation. It all starts with a conversation.
Step 2 Submit application with payment Application materials will be submitted electronically with guidance from your Compliance Specialist. You will be invoiced via email for the certification fees and can pay online. Step 3 Certification review A Compliance Specialist will begin the evaluation process once your application is received. You will be contacted should there be any questions or additional information needed to complete your certification.
Step 4 Become certified You will be notified by the Compliance Specialist once you have been awarded certification. You will then be granted license to use the Green Burial Council logo on your website and pre-approved marketing materials. You will receive a certificate verifying that your establishment is a certified Green Burial Council provider. You will also be listed on our website, so be sure to send a photograph of your choice, or a logo if you are a funeral home, to be included in your directory listing.
Step 5 Ongoing responsibilities Periodic compliance monitoring is an important component of our certification program and is required to ensure that organizations continue to meet the requirements of certification over time. Annual dues will be automatically invoiced, at which time we hope to hear from you with updates to your listing and any other changes to your status, though you may contact us at any time with changes. Throughout the year, we hope you will take advantage of educational and networking opportunities announced in our monthly newsletter and on our website.
