Our Codes of Practice and Standards provide practical guidance to professionals carrying out activities within the scope of the HTA’s remit.

Code A: Guiding principles and the fundamental principle of consent, is the overarching Code. 

Code D: Public Display provides information on the statutory and regulatory requirements for anyone working under a post-mortem licence.

We have also produced additional guidance for meeting the licensing Standards for the Public Display sector.

You can also watch webinar presentations for both Code A and Code D on our website.
