JAKIM launches global association to promote halal

  • Malaysia announced the establishment of a new international association of halal organisations that aims to bring greater collaboration to halal certification.
  • The International Halal Authority Board (IHAB), whose secretariat will be based in Malaysia, was devised by the Department of Islamic Development Malaysia (JAKIM) to fulfil five key tasks.
  • “IHAB will serve as a platform for harmonisation among global halal authorities and certification bodies,” said JAKIM’s Halal Hub director Dr Sirajuddin bin Suhaimee speaking at IHAB’s inaugural general assembly in Putrajaya, just outside of Kuala Lumpur.
  • As well as working towards harmonisation, the association will promote halal certification between members under mutual recognition arrangements.
  • It will also encourage global cooperation among members, provide training for certification bodies to increase their development, and help boost market access.
