“Halal in a Box” is a comprehensive training program created to ensure that all certification bodies adhere to common standards and procedures to harmonise the Halal certification globally.
At present there are around 122 active Halal certifying bodies around the world consisting of government or part government bodies, non-governmental organisations, local mosques or Islamic societies. There are even countries without any certifying bodies to monitor and ensure the Halal status of the product. As the demand for Halal products grows and the industry itself is fast heading towards maturity, there is an urgent need of one common direction to ensure all certifying bodies adopt of proper guidelines in its certification process.
“Halal in a Box” aims not only to build a properly structured certifying body but also to develop a professional code of ethics and standardisation of practices among auditors and other members within the organisation. The focus of this training program is to ensure that each country regardless whether it is a Muslim or non-Muslim majority country, shall have at least one accredited certifying body ensuring Halal certification. This training program will enable a country to set-up a Certifying Body for domestic certification by using the IHI Alliance Global Halal Standard as a reference during the certification process.
