JAKIM plays an important role in preserving the interest of Muslim con- sumers in Malaysia as well as ensuring all halal products in the market adheres to the Shariah law. For halal certification purposes, JAKIM needs to ensure every ingredient and raw materials used are halal. Therefore, there is a need for laboratory analysis to support and further validate to technically verify a products’ halal status. Following the rise in demand within the halal industry, JAKIM has taken the initia- tive to create the HALAL PANEL LAB (HPL) to speed up the halal certification process. The industry has the choice to engage with either the Department of Chemistry Malay- sia (JKM) or any of the HPLs. However, the result found by JKM is considered final in case of any dispute between the labs. Services provided by the HPL only involves Malaysian Halal Certification appli- cations, while monitoring and enforcement samples will utilise the services of the JKM lab. There are three laboratories appointed as HPLs, including Unipeq Sdn Bhd, Halvec Laboratories Sdn Bhd, and ALS Technichem (M) Sdn Bhd.
