Pursuant to the standard framework adopted in the global market with respect to the regulation of authorized certifiers for Halal products being imported into markets comprising Muslim consumers, the Certifiers must obtain certification issued by Halal Certification Bodies (“HCBs”) accredited by the relevant authorities. Sowt Al Jouda Professional Safety & Health is pleased to announce that it has started a strategic partnership with a HCB accredited by Emirates International Accreditation Center (EIAC), registered with ESMA and known as the Islamic Information Documentation and Certification GmbH (the “IIDC”). IIDC is accredited not only by EIAC in UAE, but also by JAKIM in Malaysia. In addition, it is recognized and approved by the Central Islamic Council of Thailand (CICOT) in Thailand, and the Ministry of Food and Drug Safety in South Korea. IIDC’s main office is located in Austria, and it has further established three branches in Hungary, Germany, and France. If you export any food & beverage products (either final or intermediate), targeting Muslim consumers, as part of your business operations, it is important to ensure that such products have been certified as Halal. Such certification is in relation to not only the ingredients of these products, but further relates to all the food chain processes implemented by your business (including the receipt of raw material, storage conditions, packaging materials, cleaning lubricants used in the production site, hygiene condition of the plant, and internal barriers/separation processes between Halal and non-Halal products at the plant).
