Following Act No. 33 of 2014 concerning Halal Product Assurance, the obligation to be halal certified for products entering, circulating, and trading in Indonesia will start on October 17, 2024. “Therefore, I invite business actors to certify their products through BPJPH.” This state was conveyed by the Head of the BPJPH Halal Registration and Certification Center, Siti Aminah, at the 2023 LPPOM MUI Halal Award, which took place on September 4, 2023 at the IPB International Convention Center, Bogor.
“I also invite business actors who have obtained halal certificates to play an active role in educational outreach and share experiences, as well as inviting other business actors to apply for halal certificates for their products immediately. Apart from being a form of compliance with applicable regulations in realizing product halal protection, halal certificates will also provide added economic value so that products become more competitive in the domestic and global markets,” said Aminah.
She asked business actors to turn the halal certificates they have obtained into excellent service to the public and consumers by consistently implementing SJPH (Halal Product Assurance System) to maintain product halalness continuously.
Aminah also said to continue to compete positively in developing the halal product industry, contribute to the development of the halal ecosystem in Indonesia, and welcome the realization of the common goal of making Indonesia the center for the largest producer of halal products in the world by 2024.
“Congratulations and success on holding the LPPOM MUI Halal Award 2023. I congratulate the LPPOM MUI partner business actors who received awards today. I expect this achievement can be maintained and improved as an effort to implement halal guarantees in Indonesia successfully,” said Aminah. (*)
