The commission shall prepare information of public interest describing the functions of the commission under this chapter and the commission’s procedures by which complaints are filed with and resolved by the commission. The commission shall make the information available to the public and appropriate state agencies.


The commission by rule shall establish methods by which service recipients can be notified of the name, mailing address, and telephone number of the commission for the purpose of directing complaints to the commission. The commission may provide for that notification by including the information on each written contract relating to bodies willed or donated to an entity regulated by the commission or authorized by the commission to receive bodies.
