Russia: Russia registers the system for identification of halal products

The Federal Agency for Technical Regulation and Metrology has registered a “halal system” which identifies the compliance of products and medicines according the Islamic law and custom. Halal certification will allow the recognition of Russian products marked as “halal” by countries that are members of the Organization of the Islamic Conference. The regulation system was developed by Akhmad Halikov, head of the press service for the Tartarstan Spiritual Administration of Muslims. Such items as vegetable-only products, permissible medicine, and correct slaughter methods will be closely monitored in accordance with the new halal initiative.
