Halal Bodies Recognized By JAKIM

Jabatan Kemajuan Islam Malaysia or JAKIM in short is an organization that was established to mobilize progress and development of Muslims in Malaysia, in line with the national standard of Malaysia as an Islamic country that has strengthened and become an international attention. JAKIM is the authority in Islamic affairs in Malayisa. One of the responsibilities is to ensure the purity of food products and restaurants in Malaysia. This is done by awarding halal certification to show that the product or restaurant is safe to be consumed by Muslims.

Although that is the case, JAKIM's power and influence is only in Malaysia. Products from countries outside of Malaysia practically do not seek halal certification from Malaysia. They get halal certification from bodies in their own countries. It is important to us as Muslim consumers to know if the body is real and up to the standards for halal certification. For this reason, JAKIM had given recognition to bodies around the world in halal certification.

JAKIM's method of awarding halal certification is one of the best systems in the world. There are organized steps to follow and a strict guideline. Only products and restaurants adhering to the standards set by JAKIM are awarded the certification. On top of that, JAKIM regularly does checks on the product factories and restaurants to make sure they comply to the rules. The halal certification process has been exemplary to bodies around the world.

Knowing recognized international bodies are important as not all of the products used in Malaysia are made in Malaysia. Some of them are imported from Thailand, NewZealand, USA, China, and other countries producing consumer goods. Products that have halal certification from it's own country are better than products that do not have halal certification. It is more secure to us if the halal certification by the organization in that country is recognized by JAKIM.

The following list shows halal international bodies recognized by JAKIM:
