Agriculture and Food Halal Certification – Middle East
Demonstrate compliance to the GCC Standardization Organization (GSO) Regulations/Standards as well as Emirates Authority for Standardization and Metrology (ESMA) for Control of Halal Products in GCC.
The ESMA and GSO Regulation is designed to help organizations meet demand for authentic, safe and affordable Halal products to be sold within the UAE and other GCC Countries (Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Bahrain, Oman and Yemen). Food processors and suppliers are encouraged to take advantage of this globally applicable and transparent Halal certification standard.
Currently worth USD 650 billion, and with 1.6 billion consumers, the global Halal market is set to grow substantially over the coming decade.
What are the benefits of GSO and ESMA Halal certification schemes?
Certification against the Regulations for Control of Halal Products scheme enables food processors and suppliers to:
- Access the growing market for Halal food products
- Place the UAE National Halal Mark for Halal Products on qualifying products to be sold within UAE
- Demonstrate the authenticity and safety of product
SGS Gulf Ltd is accredited by the Gulf Accreditation Center (GAC) to issue certificates for the execution of Halal certification activities, in-line with ESMA’s implementation of UAE Cabinet Resolution No. 10 of 2014 and GSO Halal Regulation. On successful completion of the certification process, licenses for use of National Halal Mark for Halal Products to be traded within UAE can be obtained from ESMA.
This Technical Regulation applies to all Halal Products, including production systems and services associated with the products.
