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 provisions of this Agreement embody the maximum requirements which may be stipulated in connection with the despatch of corpses from, their transit through, or their admission to the territory of a Contracting Party.
The Contracting Parties remain free to grant greater facilities either by means of bilateral agreements or by decisions arrived at by common accord in special cases and in particular in the case of transfer between frontier regions.
For such agreements or decisions to be applicable in any given case, the consent of all the States involved must be obtained.
