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.
