§ 13.113. Permanently assigned supervisor.

 (a)  Each branch place of practice shall have a currently licensed funeral director, in good standing with the Board, assigned as supervisor. The supervisor shall supervise all operations of the branch and abide by the act and this chapter and may not be the same licensee who is in charge of the principal place of business.

 (b)  The licensed funeral director acting as supervisor of a branch place of practice may do embalmings and funeral directing for other establishments on a part-time basis, if the licensee’s outside employment does not conflict with duties and obligations to the primary employer.

 (c)  A funeral establishment operated as a sole proprietorship in this Commonwealth shall be registered as such with the Board. If a licensee who operates an establishment as a sole proprietor purchases a branch place of business and desires to serve as a supervisor of the branch, the licensee shall apply to the Board in accordance with §  13.118 (relating to registration of a branch supervisor). Another licensed funeral director shall be employed to operate the principal place of business and shall be registered as a supervisor with the Board.
