Halal is an Arabic word which means permissible or lawful. In the Holy Quran, God commands Muslims and all of mankind to eat of the Halal things - "O mankind! Eat of that which is lawful and wholesome, and follow not the footsteps of the devil.  Lo! he is an avowed enemy of you." (2:168)

Malaysian Halal Certification
Halal Certification

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 at :


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).

The services provided by The Muslim Food Board are as follows:

Halal certification of food, beverages, cosmetics and pharmaceutical products.

Halal certification of packaging materials and industrial sanitisers.

Consultancy and advice on Halal production.

The Halal Stamp of Malaysia

The Department of Islamic Development Malaysia or Jakim (Jabatan Kemajuan Islam Malaysia) introduced its new Halal Stamp in October 2003. The new stamp is the standard stamp used by all states in Malaysia in contrast to the earlier one where each state has its own stamp.

The original colour of the Halal Stamp is black and white. However, certificate holders can choose any colour they wish to suit their need. The code number printed within the circle indicates the Malaysian State that issues the certification.

Assurance of Halal by JAKIM

It is outlined in the booklet by JAKIM on General Guidelines On The Slaughtering Of Animals And The Preparation And Handling of Halal Food (2001) that the examiner will only confer Halal status when he is fully confident and satisfied beyond any reasonable doubt on every aspects of the examination. The examination should not create or give rise to any question or doubt and the examination process has covered all aspects of :








Disinfection and

Management Including Intentional Practices.

How To Obtain Malaysian Halal Certification

For Malaysian Institutions and Individuals (Sites)

Individuals can apply for Halal Certification directly from the Division of Islamic Food & Consumption of JAKIM. Details are available from JAKIM's website

Jakim Website : www.halal.gov.my/v3/

For Non- Malaysian Institutions and Individuals

Jakim also conducts site inspections outside Malaysia for the purpose of accreditations since there are imported products in the Malaysian market that carry the Halal stamp. Such inspections are essentially for the benefits of Malaysian Muslims, in particular, as well as other Muslims who recognise JAKIM's responsibility. However, these inspections do not determine whether sites should cease to operate or otherwise. Should JAKIM find substantial evidence that a site is in breach of the Islamic rules, JAKIM may disallow sale of its product in Malaysia as Halal.

The accredition process entails site inspection by competent Malaysian officials and the appointment of an Islamic Organisation that will be entrusted to supervise and monitor the Halal status of the site concerned. The Islamic Organisation will be officially accredited by JAKIM and the Halal Certificates for products to be exported to Malaysia will be issued by such approved organisation.

For details visit : http://www.islam.gov.my/en

Initially, the Halal status conferred to an approved establishments and individuals will be for a period of one year. During this period, the accredited Islamic Organisation will constantly monitor the sites. To maintain its Halal status, the sites will be subject to inspection by competent Malaysian officials biennially.

It is obligatory for an accredited Islamic Organisation to monitor or supervise any sites. Failure to carry out this responsibility will result in the annulment of its accredition and withdrawal of the Halal certification awarded to the site.
