- HALAL COSMETICS : Esma to regulate new unified halal codes for perfumes and cosmetics in Islamic countries from next year

Dubai / Emirats Arabes Unis :
Unified halal codes for perfumes and cosmetics 
for firms  wishing to market their products in Islamic countries.
 The Emirates Standardisation and Metrology Authority (Esma) is finalising unified halal
codes for perfumes and cosmetics which will be a point of reference for firms around the world,
 wishing to market their products in Islamic countries.
Mandated by the Organisation of Islamic Cooperation (OIC), Esma has formed a technical
committee consisting of industry experts as well as Islamic scholars who will sit together
and work out a draft.
“We are proud to have been chosen by OIC to carry out this task among all the regulatory
 bodies in the world, it speaks volumes about our work and the success we have had in setting
standards in the country,” said Mohammad Saleh Badri, Director General of Esma, speaking
 exclusively to Gulf News.
Esma is looking to have the standards ready by early next year, which will then be sent to OIC
for approval, following which all the firms who claim their products to be halal have to conform
 to Esma standards.

“We are the technical regulatory authority for OIC for perfumes and cosmetics like toothpaste,
skin care products etc. Brands claiming to be halal and need to enter Islamic countries, no matter
where they are based need to be certified by OIC according to standards set by us,” added Badri.
Two aspects

The standards in principle will be based on Sharia law, mainly looking at two aspects.
The first will ensure that there are no traces of pork or its derivatives in the products, and that
 the derivatives present in the product are extracted from animals slaughtered in a halal way.
The second is to ensure that there are no traces of alcohol beyond acceptable levels, Badri
explained, describing what makes a product qualify as.
The unified scheme is being worked out to ensure there is no duplication of certification and will
save firms from a lot of formalities, he added.
“We are working closely with OIC and other Islamic authorities, but It is not yet decided as
to who will be issuing the certificates, we are setting the regulations and implementation will be
worked out once the draft is ready,” said Badri.
The implementation of the scheme means all cosmetics brands entering countries affiliated with OIC,
which are 56 in all, including the GCC and other Arab countries will have to comply to the standards.
