Disclosure of information about cremated remains

(1) As used in this section, “family member” means any individual related by blood, marriage or adoption to a person whose cremated remains are in the possession of the Oregon Health Authority.

(2) Notwithstanding any other provision of law, the authority shall disclose to the general public the name and the dates of birth and death of a person whose cremated remains are in the possession of the authority for the purpose of:

(a) Giving a family member of the person an opportunity to claim the cremated remains; or

(b) Creating a memorial for those persons whose cremated remains are not claimed.

(3) If an individual contacts the authority to determine whether the authority is in possession of the cremated remains of a family member of the individual and the authority determines that the authority is in possession of the cremated remains, the authority shall disclose to the individual that the authority is in possession of the cremated remains and offer the individual the opportunity to claim the remains.
