At all time, the rightful owner of the halal certificate shall be HCB and it shall be returned to as and when deemed necessary by HCB
The client must always fulfil the certification requirements set by HCB in order to maintain the halal certification including implementing appropriate changes when they are communicated by the Halal Certification Body.
If the client provides copies of the certification documents to others, the documents shall be reproduced in their entirety
In making reference to product certification in communication media such as documents, brochures or advertising, the client shall submit to the HCB a copy for vetting and comply with the HCB requirements.
Incorrect references to the certification scheme, or misleading use of licenses, certificates, marks, or any other mechanism for indicating a product is certified, found in documentation or other publicity must be avoided
The use and display of licenses, Halal certificates and Halal marks of conformity shall be prominent, only per the approved ones and in entirety
Halal certificate owners who failed to renew their Halal certificates will not be allowed to use the Halal mark at the premises or on the manufactured Halal products/services or inside the grocery shop or supermarkets corridors
The certificate holder shall not reproduce the granted Halal certificate in part and/or in a way that would hinder the legibility, nor shall tamper with the original copies or photocopies of the Halal certificate. He shall not translate the certificate and/or test reports in other languages without the control and consent of HCB.
Upon suspension, withdrawal, or termination of certification, the client must discontinue its use of all advertising matter that contains any reference thereto and takes action as required by the certification scheme (e.g. the return of certification documents) and takes any other required measure.
“And they say: these animals and crops are forbidden – no one may eat them except those we wish” – this is their claim. Animals whose backs are forbidden, cattle over which they do not (even) mention the name of Allah. (All that is) a lie against Him. He will repay them for that which they invent.” (Qur’an 6:138)
