Authorities investigate the cause of death

A doctor will sign the death certificate, which will include the cause of death. The doctor will also enter a notice of the death into the Population Information System.

A post mortem examination may be performed in order to determine the cause of death.

The deceased cannot be buried until a doctor has issued a burial permit.
