Government Launches New Brand of Funeral Services to Assure QualityThe Small and Medium Business Administration launched a new brand named "Yea-Jang" to insure that products sold for use in funerals meet the highest quality standards.
The Small and Medium Business Administration will enforce quality assurance standards in cooperation with the Korea Funeral Society. The SMBA will inspect all products and affix their "Yea-Jang" seal only to those products meeting their standards of quality.
The SMBA also stated that "there have been numerous customer complaints due to the lack of a quality assurance system for materials used for funeral services, such as shrouds and wood coffins. From now on, when customers purchase goods for use in funeral services they tell by this seal that the goods are of the highest quality."
