E-halal system for all by next year

PUTRAJAYA: The Malaysia Islamic Development Department JAKIM is targeting use of the e-Halal system by all states by next year, Deputy Minister in the Prime Minister's Department Datuk Dr Mashitah Ibrahim said today.
She said that only seven states would implement the system this year, led by Penang, Malacca, Negeri Sembilan and Sabah, followed by Pahang, Sarawak and Johor at year-end.
Mashitah told reporters here that the e-system would facilitate collaboration between JAKIM and state religious departments and council to standardise procedures, certificates and logos.
She said that the e-Halal system that JAKINM introduced in 2007 enables applications to be made on line and for anyone to check on the halal status of products and premises.
