Halal food forum

Free event

Date: Tuesday 20 August 2013, 10:30 - 15:30

Location: BSI, 389 Chiswick High Road, London, W4 4AL

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.
