Halal medical device – General requirements

The Malaysian Standards relating to halal have been developed to meet the challenges of the growing demand for halal products and services, to complement the halal ecosystem within Malaysia. This standard was formulated based on the concept of halal built-in and used by existing competent authorities towards halal certification.

Halal built-in is a systematic approach to halal product development which begins with predefined objectives by management and embeds or integrates the requirements of Halal as part of the overall management and control systems in all aspect of manufacturing/ production, from strategy/ planning to research and development to raw material sourcing until delivery of finished product to its point of purchase, ensuring continuous compliance to the specific halal requirements and the aspects of product safety, performance, efficacy/effectiveness and quality, along with the hygienic aspects in manufacturing and handling of the Halal product. Halal requirements are as stated by Shariah and fatwa, which are incorporated into halal standards which can be in the form of the standards developed by Department of Standards Malaysia and also International Standards such as ISO. Halal should not be tested into products but should be built-in into the management system.

This Malaysian Standard specifies the requirements in the manufacturing and handling of medical device for the purpose of halal certification.
