KUALA LUMPUR, Oct 25 (Bernama) — The Department of Islamic Development Malaysia (Jakim) will train officers in international halal certification, its director general Datuk Wan Mohamad Sheikh Abdul Aziz said.
He said the selected officers would be sent for training at the Institute of Islamic Training Malaysia in Bangi and they would help existing Jakim’s team to carry out halal certification inspection abroad.
“This is part of the preparation to produce internationally-recognised halal certificate,” he told reporters after an Aidilfitri gathering with people with impaired-vision here on Sunday.
Wan Mohamad also said that Jakim would continue its collaboration with 42 Islamic organisations in 22 countries which are Jakim’s agents in implementing the certification process.
