  • a reference to the application form filled in by the company complete with relative attachments
  • a mention of the appropriate halal standards and relevant certification schemes

A company can withdraw from the contract at any time by giving written notice, without having to pay a fine for early withdrawal.

Halal Italia may revoke certification if the company fails to comply with certain contractual stipulations. The company and certification body are obliged to inform each other promptly about any changes affecting the certification contract. Either party may refuse to accept the proposed changes.
