Proposed amendments to the export requirements for halal animal material and halal animal products

MPI is proposing to issue a new notice specifying requirements pertaining to the processing of animal material and animal products that are intended to be labelled as halal for the purpose of export with a halal certificate or halal official assurance. The new notice will revoke and replace the Animal Products (Overseas Market Access Requirements for Halal Assurances) Notice 2014.
