Inspection of the corpse

In every case of death, the corpse must be inspected by a public health officer.

Please note:

  • The inspection can be performed three hours after death at the earliest.

 

  • You should not make any changes to the body (including changes to the deceased’s clothing).

 

  • Only when the corpse has been officially inspected, may the undertaker remove it.

 

  • Even if the body is to be cremated or moved to another region or country, please contact an undertaker

 

Additional information:

  • Ask the deceased’s doctor to issue a certificate of medical treatment.

  • Should the cause of death be unclear, it may be necessary to perform a post mortem.

  • Under Austrian law, a doctor is not permitted to reveal the cause of death (unless previously released of his/her duty of confidentiality by the deceased).
