If the instructions relate only to the processing of specified data, they can be entrusted to the people in charge of the processing. In such cases, the person concerned must give specific consent and accept the general terms and conditions of use of the processing.
Failing this, the heirs of the deceased will be given access to the instructions in order to have them applied. The heir must provide documentary proof both of his/her identity and of his/her status as legal heir, through a notarised document or a family record book (livret de famille).
