What is Halal Certification?
Islamic Services of America's logo indicates that the Halal status of your product or service is being independently monitored by the staff of Islamic Services of America. Our logo is recognized by the Muslim consumer as the sign that your products meet the strictest standards of Halal. For business, I.S.A. has streamlined the process, making quality recognized Halal certification practical, efficient, and affordable from an implementation standpoint.
For more information please fill out an Information Request Form. An I.S.A. auditor will review your form and contact you with information that is relevant to your company or organization.

Production Facility Profile
The maintenance of a Halal program requires the close involvement of the production supervisors, including; who is in charge of your production facility, who orders the raw materials, and who is in charge of packaging and materials. If the products intended for certification or those identical to them are made at more than one facility, we need to know the location of each production site and a plant profile for each site.
