The Iowa Funeral Directors Association represents nearly 700 Iowa licensed funeral directors and 425 funeral home establishments throughout the state. The mission of the Iowa Funeral Directors Association is to promote and support funeral service excellence. To that end, IFDA promotes high standards within the field of funeral service through continuing education programs, legislative representation and service to Iowa communities.
The Iowa Electronic Death Registration System (EDRS) is an automated, secure web-based software application designed to process death records from point of initial entry and certification through registration and assignment of the State File Number. When implemented, EDRS will expedite correction requests and communication on issues between funeral directors, medical certifiers and Vital Records. This will make records more readily available to family, the Social Security Administration, County Recorders, and other appropriate parties.
EDRS went live April 21, 2014. From that date, all death certificates must be handled via EDRS.
