Malaysian Standard

Malaysian Standard on Halal Food (MS 1500:2009)

 

The Malaysian Standard entitled ‘Halal Food: Production, Preparation, Handling and Storage – General Guide (MS 1500:2009) was developed under the Malaysian Standard Development System, under the wing of Department of Standardization Malaysia (DSM), Ministry of Science, Technology and Innovation.

 

The Malaysian Standard is one of five government initiatives in realizing the dream of establishing Malaysia as the center of halal food.

 

The standard was developed by the National Industrial Standardization Committee related to Halal matters(ISC I), and is represented by multiple organisations including JAKIM, that acts as the Chairman for the Technical Committee. Please refer to Appendix 1 for an overview of the standardization development system in Malaysia and how ISC I contributes to this system.

 

This standard contains practical guidelines for the food industry on the preparation and handling of halal food (including nutrient enhancers). It aims to set the ground rules for food products or food businesses in Malaysia. It will be used by JAKIM as the basis for certification whilst other requirements will also be taken into account to complete the certification process.

 

 

Refer to Appendix 2 for a summary of the Malaysian Standard development pertaining to halal food.

 

This document has undergone the process required by international standardization agencies such as; International Standardization Organization (ISO), where the international standardization development system is based on the agreement of all vital parties,including governments, private sectors, NGO's, researchers and professional bodies. Malaysia (DSM) uses the same ISO policy.

 

It is hoped that in the future, the Malaysian Standard (Government official document) will be promoted internationally and recognized by other countries or blocks such as America, Europe, China and members of ASEAN.
