Accreditations and recognitions

Halal Italia certificates are accepted by customs worldwide.

The main international Islamic accreditation and control organisations have listed Halal Italia among their recognised bodies and check its compliance with the relevant certification standards through their own auditors.

How halal markets operate

The 54 countries with an Islamic majority favour halal certificates recognised by leading international accreditation bodies.

While customs restrictions in some countries do not allow goods to enter unless they are accompanied by a valid halal certificate.
