The member States of the Council of Europe, signatory hereto,
Considering that there is an increasing need to simplify formalities relating to the international transfer of corpses;
Bearing in mind that the transfer of corpses does not create a risk to health even if death was due to a communicable disease provided that appropriate measures are taken, in particular with regard to the imperviousness of the coffin,
The Contracting Parties shall apply, as between themselves, the provisions of this Agreement.
For the purpose of this Agreement, transfer of corpses is understood to be the international transport of human remains from the State of departure to the State of destination; the State of departure is that in which the transfer began; in the case of exhumed remains, it is that in which burial had taken place; the State of destination is that in which the corpse is to be buried or cremated after the transport.
This Agreement shall not apply to the international transport of ashes.
