KUALA LUMPUR: From next year, Muslims can check the halal content of an imported product in the market via the Halal Verified Engine (HVE) system through the Malaysian Islamic Development Department's (Jakim) website.
Jakim director-general Datuk Othman Mustapha said the system was developed by the department with Dagang Halal Berhad at a cost of RM3.5mil including promotional cost.
"The HVE search system contains halal product data collated by syariah and halal experts which have been approved by Jakim," he told reporters after signing a Memorandum of Agreement with Dagang Halal Berhad to create the HVE in conjunction with the 2012 World Halal Forum on Tuesday.
He said before this, Jakim had created the e-Jakim portal for local halal products and that HVE was for imported goods.
Othman said Jakim would review the categorisation of halal goods by 57 halal certification bodies from 32 countries to ensure the products were really halal for Muslims. - Bernama
