|Halal-related agencies Intro||
Currently, the Indonesian Ulama Council (MUI), the nation’s top Muslim clerical body, works with the Lembaga Pengkajian Pangan Obat obatan dan Kosmetika (LPPOM), the country's Food and Drug Analysis Agency, as the sole national certifier. Established in 1998, LPPOM MUI cooperates with the Ministry of Religious Affairs, Ministry of Agriculture and Ministry of Cooperatives and SMEs, Ministry of Commerce, Ministry of Industry, Ministry of Marine Affairs and Fisheries, Ministry of Tourism and Creative Economy and a number of university/colleges in Indonesia.
Apart from its own halal certification, LPPOM MUI also recognises other halal certificates issued by organisations that it approves. As at Oct, 2014, the list comprises 39 Halal Certifier Bodies from 23 countries, including 31 approved for (cattle) slaughtering , 32 for food processing , and 14 for flavours/flavouring. The list can be found on the LPPOM MUI website. Foreign halal certification is effective for 2 years after which they have to be re-approved.
The Indonesian government's Ministry of Religious Affairs will take over halal certification from 2017 with its Halal Products Certification Agency (Badan Penyelenggara Jaminan Produk, BPJPH). The new body will facilitate the administrative process of halal certification, which involves receiving all applications, collecting their fees, and issuing certificates.
MUI's role will be limited to issuing fatawa and conducting the audit process, which will also be given to other organisations such as universities and civil societies in order to speed up the work.
