Unified halal standards proposed for Phillipines  MANILA, March 14, 2011 (News Agencies)-- . Muslims in Phillipines are optimistic that a proposed unified set of halal standards would finally end the years of confusion surrounding the issue. Commission on Muslim Filipinos (NCMF) has started creating a unified system for various existing halal standards to aid government intervention in developing appropriate products for the market, the agency said in a statement last week.
 
Bai Omera D. Dianalan-Lucman, the commission’s corporate executive officer, signed Order No. 2011-141 instructing Datu Tahir S. Lidasan, NCMF external relations and halal technical and accreditation unit director, to lead such project in consultation with local and foreign halal stakeholders. Omera D.

“The NCMF envisions a system whereby government agencies can effectively contribute their expertise in developing our capacity to produce globally competitive halal products,” Mr. Lidasan said.
 
He said that improving local halal standards involves coordinated efforts among three government offices, the Agriculture department takes charge of creating standards on abattoir, ruminants, and meat, while the Trade department is responsible for marketing halal products.
 
Meanwhile, he said the Bureau of Food and Drugs under the Health department will design processes on how to analyze both food and non-food halal products.
