Code of Good Practice




The establishment and maintenance of public confidence in the skill, honesty and integrity of the profession of monument building is fundamental to the future success of the monument industry.

Special responsibilities of sensitivity, dignity, and reliability are imposed upon the profession of monument building.

As a result, the Monument Builders of North America as the trade association of the industry, seeks to work closely with all other segments of the memorial industry and cemeteries to protect the interest of the public. To do so, members of the association subscribing to this Code give notice that they clearly recognize the vital public need to preserve and encourage fair and equitable competition and fair trade practices among all who are engaged in the sale of memorials to the public.

THEREFORE, the Monument Builders of North America and members have adopted this Code of Good Practice for the monument building industry. The public will know that those who subscribe to this Code are those in the monument industry who are sincerely concerned with the protection and interests of those who come in contact with the industry.
