The Department of Islamic Development Malaysia (“JAKIM”) and DagangHalal Berhad (“DHB”) recently launched (on 11 December 2013) the Halal Verified Engine (“HVE”)— the world’s first online system designed to help expedite Halal-certification process for applicants. Built entirely on Microsoft’s cloud services, namely Windows Azure and SQL Server, the HVE also allows the public to “verify with just one click” the veracity and validity of Halal certificates from 73 international Halal verification bodies recognised by JAKIM, for both local and imported products.
