KOTA KINABALU: Malaysia is set to introduce a standard halal logo for its products with the Islamic Development Department (Jakim) made the sole authority on the matter. 

International Trade and Industry Minister Datuk Seri Rafidah Aziz said the logo would help clear any confusion about halal certification for Malaysian products in the international market. 

She said Jakim was co-ordinating with state Islamic departments on the system's structure. Jakim would set up a unit to enforce the certification system and use Health Ministry labs when necessary, she said. 

“The design of the logo has been finalised. The respective state Islamic departments will be identified through bar codes under the logo,” she said during the Sabah Investment Seminar yesterday.
