Death certificate exhibition

The death of a person must be reported to the competent authority within whose jurisdiction he has taken place. Only after the death certificate has been declared in the death book can a death certificate be issued as official proof of death.

The notification of a death is required in the following order

  • any person who has lived with the deceased in a domestic community,
  • the person in whose home the death occurred,
  • any other person present at the time of death or who is aware of the death of his or her own knowledge.

As a rule, the burial can only take place after the death has been agiven.
