|Halal-related agencies Intro|
There is no single halal certifier or standard in China and there are different halal standards in each province, which has caused a lot of confusion.
To address such concerns a draft law on a national regulation for halal food was proposed in 2002. At the National People's Congress (NPC) in 2016 it was hoped that the draft law would be passed, but the legislation was dropped in April. Opponents cited the need for a separation between the state and religion, and for food safety laws in general to be improved, which would correspondingly benefit the halal sector.
In the meantime there appears to be a move towards adopting Malaysian halal standards.
In May, it was announced that a state-backed halal hub is to be established in Shaanxi province, with the backers proposing that Malaysia’s Halal Development Corporation Sdn Bhd (HDC) help in its development and the establishment of a halal certification unit.
