The burning or burial of the remains of animals or commodities subject to such disposition under the Statute shall be carried out in an incinerator; its operations and exhaust system shall conform to stipulations under the environmental protection laws and regulations. However, in an emergency situation, field burning may be allowed, in which, a pit of a size appropriate to the target object shall be dug, or constructed, and its surroundings properly disinfected. After burning, only the bone ashes are left and the ashes shall be properly buried.

To complete the task, a stone tablet or cement pillar shall be erected, stating the date of burial and excavation period for monitoring and checking purposes.
