Halal Certification is a process by which
a Government-controlled Agency or a credible Islamic organization
certifies (Board) that a company's products can be lawfully
consumed by Muslims. Those who meet the criteria for certification
are issued with Halal Certificates and they may use the
Halal symbol on their products and for advertising.
Food labeling laws around the world require that claims
made on the product label be certified as true. A "Halal
Certified" stamp on a label is often seen by Muslim
customers as a sign of a trustworthy or genuine product.
Such a stamp may even be required for the export of food
to certain Muslim countries.
A Halal certificate is an assurance that a particular product
has been thoroughly investigated and found to conform to
the Islamic Shariah Laws and therefore is suitable for use
by Halal consumers. Products certified as Halal by the Board
can utilise the registered trademark Halal logo.
Some of the samples of the Halal Logos are available
Food manufacturers usually pay a fee and voluntarily submit
their food products for Halal Certification. Government-controled
Agencies or Independent organizations are responsible for
screening the products, observing the production process,
and deciding on a company's compliance with the Islamic
Shariah Laws (Islamic dietary law).
