He said that the issue will be discussed in the framework of the working visit to Grozny, where he will host the next meeting of coordination Council on industry. "Today in Russia, as elsewhere in the world, the demand for the products and services that meet the requirements of Halal. Strict criteria of quality Halal products form the interest from the representatives of various denominations, as well as supporters of a healthy lifestyle", - said Denis Manturov.
The annual world turnover in the field of Halal more than $ 2 trillion, and Russia billions of rubles. By 2025, according to experts, its share in total output may be no less than 20%. However, certification bodies, regulatory and Supervisory authorities, producers and consumers are faced with the issues of compliance with Halal in the production process of products and services marked with the relevant sign or name.
"Regulations that were specific to the production of products and services Halal until recently in our country was not. The development of unified standards for Halal with national status, and the introduction of standardized methods in the production of products and services Halal, harmonized with international standards, will allow to unify requirements to the Russian producers. Ultimately, this will provide opportunities for the successful development of not only internal but also external market of these products," the Minister added.
Today in Russia was registered on 24 different systems of voluntary certification (SDS) in the field of products and services Halal, and each of them determines the rule of certification criteria and requirements to the experts. In other words, within each of these systems work is carried out independently, without uniform requirements for the procedures of confirmation of conformity.
Now Rosstandart is not possible to monitor and control for already registered systems and to exclude them from the Unified register in case of violations. This causes both minor and gross violations on the part of the holders of the voluntary certification systems, and promotes unfair competition in the field of voluntary conformity assessment.
