THE Philippine Halal Export Development and Promotion Board (PHEDPB), led by Trade Secretary Ramon M. Lopez, convened for the approval of the design and guidelines of the Philippine Halal Logo on March 19, 2019, at the Board of Investments Building, Makati City.
The board, composed of nine government agencies led by the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI), approved the design and guidelines on the use of the Philippine Halal Logo during its ninth board meeting.
The conceptualization of the Philippine Halal Logo has gone through various consultative meetings with relevant stakeholders, including Muslim religious groups conducted by the Halal Export Board-Technical Working Group.
The guidelines on the use of Philippine Halal Logo will be issued to a product or service certified as Halal by the Philippine Accreditation Bureau (PAB)- accredited Halal Certification Body demonstrating compliance with the standards set forth in the Philippine National Halal Certification Scheme and other related laws.
The launch of the Philippine Halal Logo is set on May 3, 2019, at the second Philippine National Halal Conference at the Quest Hotel, Clark City, Pampanga.
