The launching of the MS 2200:2008 – Standards on Halal Cosmetic and MS 2400:2010 – Standards on Halal Logistics was held at MATRADE Exhibition and Convention Centre (MECC) on 23rd June 2010, in conjunction with the opening of the 7th Malaysia International Halal Showcase 2010 (MIHAS 2010). These standards was launched by YAB Dato’ Sri Mohd Najib Tun Hj. Abdul Razak, Prime Minister of Malaysia.
As quoted by the Prime Minister of Malaysia “The Halal Cosmetics standards are prescribed as practical guidelines for the Halal cosmetics and personal care industry. The standard on Halal logistics is a comprehensive standard and is the first in the world which addresses three main components: transportation, warehousing and retailing. It addresses the framework for an organization to establish a management system on halalan-toyyiban requirements”.
These standards will play an essential role in ensuring the success of the Halal industry. Besides these standards, the Prime Minister of Malaysia also said there are also other ways that Malaysia could support the growth of the Halal industry such as by setting up a global reference centre in Halal knowledge and related services and by offering itself as a base for international Halal operators.
