52. A deceased person shall be transported into or out of Québec only after the issue of a special authorization by the Minister or any other person authorized by him and on the conditions fixed by regulation.
Such special authorization is issued upon the handing over by a funeral director:
(1) of a copy of the declaration of death or the equivalent;
(2) of a notice indicating the place of destination of the deceased person.
If the transport must be made out of Québec, the funeral director must hand over a certificate signed by him attesting that the body has been embalmed.
The Minister shall issue a special authorization under this section if he is of opinion that such issue is not contrary to the interest of public health.
