Guide - Example of a Certification Scheme for Halal Products
Halal product certification is used ever more widely to provide confidence that products, processes and services fulfil specified halal requirements. This guideline is intended to provide useful information to those involved in product certification on the application of ISO/IEC 17067. It provides an example of a type 5 scheme, as outlined in ISO/IEC 17067, related to the certification of tangible products. There are many different ways in which halal product certification is operated in practice. This guideline does not prevent scheme owners, in consultation with other stakeholders, from adopting other measures or using them in different combinations. This guideline serves as a foundation for facilitating the recognition and acceptance of halal certification in the interests of international trade.
