We are looking for knowledgeable and trusted experts who might like to join a new UK halal food standard committee.
The European standards body, CEN, will soon be developing a new European standard for halal food. As the UK’s National Standards Body, BSI is therefore looking to bring together experts who have an interest in this area to join a new halal food committee, who will then contribute to the development of the European standard.
If you have an interest in this area, please join us for a one-day forum where you can find out how you can have an input and influence the development of the standard for halal food.
During the day you will:
- Learn about the background to the proposed standard for halal food
- Find out about the impact of European standards and how they affect you
- Learn how you can participate and influence the development of the standard for halal food
- Find out how a new UK committee is formed and what happens at CEN meetings.
