What are the cremation laws about transporting across state lines?
Thinking about transporting the cremation ashes? One questioner was - she asked: Once a body has been cremated, are there any laws about transporting the remains from one state to another?
Once the body has been cremated, that is what is called “final disposition” and there are no laws in this country governing the transportation of the remains from state to state. However, the TSA has some regulations that pertain to taking cremated remains as a “carry on” while boarding a airplane. The cremation urn cannot be made out of metal because it cannot be x-rayed.
