What is Halal
Derived from the core principles and teachings of Islam, Halal is an Arabic word that means “permissible”, with its opposite being haram, “not permissible”. With all the concerns surrounding Halal products, people are likely to believe that Halal applies only to the food they eat and the items they patronize—but this is not the case.
How IHAF supports the Halal industry
By creating a global network of accreditation agencies and putting universal standards in place, IHAF produces a host of benefits that ripples through the industry, from the government and the business community down to the public.
How to be a Member
An accreditation body interested in becoming a member of IHAF needs to submit a set of requirements that will be evaluated, peer-reviewed and audited by IHAF and its arms. Application requirements vary for each membership category.
The International Halal Accreditation Forum (IHAF) is an independent, non-government network of accreditation entities that are mandated to enforce halal standards in their countries and territories. Empowered by its aims to protect the growing number of halal consumers and to facilitate international trade; IHAF establishes a solid ground for the global industry of halal food and non-food products.
IHAF is based in UAE and spearheaded by the Dubai Islamic Economy Development Center (DIEDC) and the Emirates Authority for Standardization and Metrology (ESMA). It is anchored on the belief that greater cooperation among regional and international organizations is key in creating a halal industry that is strong, stable, reliable and responsive to the needs of consumers and businesse sectors across the world.
