Frequently Asked Questions
We halalcertify meat, meat products, food products, medicines, pastries, sweets, ice cream, beverages etc.
It is very difficult to say in advance how long the process takes. This depends partly on the number of products and partly on the changes that need to be made in product content and also in production to meet our halal criteria. We also need to get an inspection, which also takes time to plan.
Generally, expect it to take 2-4 weeks.
Please see also: The schedule for the halal certification process.
We do not halal certify to Malaysia, Indonesia, Saudi Arabia and UAE. The reason for this is that the halal process for these countries is too complicated and expensive. In addition, only single companies have so far asked us about halal certificates to these countries. For this reason, it is not economically justifiable for us or our customers to invest in halal certificates for these countries.
Because there are no single internationally approved certification standards, the certificate is not recognized by all muslim countries.
It is very difficult to give a straight answer to this question when we do not know what it is we halal certify, how many products it is and what it will cost us in handling and inspection. When you submit your application, we have received what we need to count on to be able to return with a price proposal.
Without an application we unfortunately have no basis to count and give a cost estimate.
It happens that you need to make some changes to meet our halal criteria. It can act as little as changing a raw material / added to make certain adjustments in the production plant etc. These are often small changes that do not require major investments. In some cases, no changes are needed for the product and its production can already meet our requirements without the producer having knowledge of it.
You can read more about this in our certification scheme which you can get after that we receive your application.
