By year-end, nearly 400 undertakers will receive a working license for the city's funeral homes, the Beijing Times reported. The government will require undertakers to obtain a work license from Dec 1 to ensure they possess the necessary skills.

More than 2,000 undertakers in the city will receive training for junior, middle and senior work licenses. The government is also working on standards for services such as scattering ashes at sea and cemetery management.
