What is Halal certification?

John Li

A certification body issues a Halal certificate which is a document that confirms the products which an entity is producing and/or selling meets the requirements of Islamic law to be considered as Halal. Each certification body abides by its own framework to ensure the items are verified for Halal consumption. An organisation can have as many of their products certified by a Halal certification body, so long as these products meet the Halal criteria. This can include meat, poultry, and other food products such as confectionery and bakery items. Once an organisation is ‘certified’ by a body, they are permitted to use its logo and benefit from other value added services. A certifier typically has technical auditors, quality assurance officers and shariah advisors.
