National Concrete Burial
The NCBVA recognizes its leadership role in the
area of funeral service to continually research and develop, then
specify and promote minimum performance standards for the burial vault
industry. This publication will serve as the standard whereby burial
vault producers, customers, and all interested parties may judge the
structural integrity of outer burial receptacles being brought to the
marketplace. The procedures outlined in this report are designed to
demonstrate performance under the wide variety of soil and vehicle loads
which the typical concrete burial vault and graveliner must withstand.
The NCBVA intends to establish testing procedures which will demonstrate
whether or not the units manufactured meet minimum performance
specifications and criteria
