Specifically, ISWA HALAL CERTIFICATION shall ensure that all Halal products inspected will bear a stamp guaranteeing (certifying) that the said commodities have passed the rigorous standards of the Islamic Law.

This concern also extends to those countries importing Halal meat from companies in America. This situation has resulted in many inquiries directed to the ISWA HALAL CERTIFICATION from religious organizations and business entities within the United States and throughout the world, expressing their concerns about so-called Halal products exports from the United States.
