The Indonesian halal market is one of the biggest growing markets due to 230 million Muslim consumers. For a Muslim-majority country like Indonesia, one of the important things to consider when buying or consuming daily product is halal. Global Islamic Economy Report forecasts that the demand for world halal cosmetics will reach $76 billion by 2024, with Indonesia ranking the second biggest gold consumer. Therefore halal assurance has become the key concerns of the Indonesian government.
Indonesia’s Halal Product Assurance (HPA) Law has been implemented in October 2019 and will be phased in within seven years. Article 4 in HPA Law states that all products that enter, are circulated, and are traded Indonesia must be halal-certified. Those not certified halal need to label “non-halal” on the packaging, which may affect the product purchase by Muslim consumers.
The Indonesia government has issued several derivatives regulations. A new halal certification system will be introduced and administered by the Halal Product Assurance Organizing Agency BPJPH, which will involve Halal Certification Assessment Institution MUI and the Halal Examination Agency LPH.
To help enterprises better prepared for the mandatory cosmetics halal certification in the next few years, ChemLinked invited Ms. Dewi Rijah Sari, the expert consultant of dRs Consûlta, to interpret the update on Indonesian halal regulation evolution, implication of the regulation to cosmetic's business, challenges and opportunities for the cosmetic industry. You’ll also have the opportunity to ask and receive answers live.
