49 Pa. Code § 13.193. Advertising media to include licensed individual.

§ 13.193. Advertising media to include licensed individual.

 In order that the public knows the name of a licensed person who will serve them, an establishment which is maintained under a pre-1935 corporation, restricted business corporation, widow, widower or estate license shall indicate the name of the permanent supervisor in advertising media.


   The provisions of this §  13.193 adopted October 19, 1973, effective October 20, 1973, 3 Pa.B. 2392; amended November 11, 1977, effective November 12, 1977, 7 Pa.B. 3306; amended December 6, 1991, effective December 7, 1991, 21 Pa.B. 5645.

Notes of Decisions


   This regulation does not unconstitutionally restrict the funeral establishment supervisor’s right to freedom of commercial speech, where indicating the name of a supervisor in all advertisements lessens the possibility that the consumer may be deceived at little or no inconvenience to the funeral director. Kleese v. State Board of Funeral Directors, 738 A.2d 523 (Pa. Cmwlth. 1999).
