Regulations relating to standards and specifications for purple warning lights used by vehicles leading or escorting funeral processions [19 VAC 30 ‑ 165]
Action is Exempt from Article 2 of the Administrative Process Act
Action:
2024 Amendments to Regulations relating to standards and specifications for purple warning lights used by vehicles leading or escorting funeral processions
Action 6478
 
General Information
Action Summary These amendments are intended to reduce the burden on small business by simplifying the process funeral homes must follow when equipping their escort vehicles with purple lights. The amendments specify that instead of being required to determine the lights meet the applicable industry standards for the color purple, the funeral home may now rely upon markings or certification by the manufacturer, seller, or installer, that the lights meet the applicable industry standards. Such marking and certification is easier to both comply with and enforce, placing the burden of compliance on those who already must comply, the manufacturer or marketer of the lights.
