Halal, despite gaining momentum as the new economic force in recent years, is still challenged by a lack of uniformity in its certification process - a scenario long gripped by the fragmented nature of the industry itself.
The absence of a Halal authority in some countries has led to a proliferation of Halal certification bodies who tend to operate without any regulatory oversight. A lack of mutual recognition amongst them accentuates the fragmented nature of the industry.
IHI Alliance being a global Halal authority recognised by the Organisation of Islamic Conference (OIC) is now taking the lead to address the urgent need of producing highly competent auditors adept with not only the Shariah aspect but also other technical and ethical requirements that contribute to Halal as a holistic premium standard.
Halal Lead Auditor’s Training (HLAT) was introduced as a means to elevate the quality of the Halal auditing process in accordance with the guidelines set forth in IHI Alliance’s global Halal standard. The programme is committed to provide Halal auditors with structured methodologies of Halal conformity assessment that include documents preliminary review, detailed planning, audit conduct, systematic reporting, corrective measures and periodical surveillance exercise.
HLAT also imposes stringent criteria in maintaining Halal integrity striking a balance between theoretical and practical skills essential for auditors with different levels of experience. At the end of the training programme participants who successfully meet the requirement of the continuous assessment and written examination will be awarded a certificate of qualification by IHI Alliance.
