Indonesia is planning to require halal certification on products’ labels on the basis of Halal Product Assurance Law. A new official authority “Badan Penyelenggara Jaminan Produk Halal” (BPJPH: Halal Product Guarantee Agency) will issue these halal certificates.
The new regulation will cover products including foods, beverages, medicines, cosmetics, chemicals, industrial products and goods and services related to daily use. It requests compulsory “Halal” labels on imported Islamic products. Indonesia will finish stipulating the details and relative measures before September 2016, and officially implement it from 2019.
If this regulation is passed successfully it will be the first regulation on mandatory labeling of halal certification in the whole world.
