Pre-conference Workshop



Halal product industry has been an emerging industry in Malaysia and all over the world. Today, halal products are not focused only on food but all products including pharmaceuticals. Since, most of Malaysian population are Muslims, the Malaysian Standard on halal pharmaceuticals has been launched to ensure that manufacturers comply with the standard to produce them. The new certification for the controlled or prescriptive medicines or ethical products developed by the Department of Islamic Development Malaysia (Jakim) will enable Halal Pharmaceuticals to enter into more local and global markets.

Jabatan Kemajuan Islam Malaysia (JAKIM) or Department of Islamic Development Malaysia is the agency responsible for the Islamic affairs including halal certification in Malaysia. Therefore, JAKIM plays very important role to protect Muslim consumers in Malaysia and it is always been JAKIM’s responsibility to assure them to seek for halal products as urged by Shariah.

Malaysia has been a pioneer in the development of Halal standards. The Malaysian Standard is one of five government initiatives in realising the dream of establishing Malaysia as the centre of halal food. The Malaysian Standard entitled ‘Halal Food: Production, Preparation, Handling and Storage – General Guide (MS 1500:2009) was developed under the Malaysian Standard Development System, under the wing of Department of Standardisation Malaysia (DSM), Ministry of Science, Technology and Innovation. This standard contains practical guidelines for the food industry on the preparation and handling of halal food (including nutrient enhancers). It aims to set the ground rules for food products or food businesses in Malaysia. It will be used by JAKIM as the basis for certification whilst other requirements will also be taken into account to complete the certification process.
