For all exports, only recognised Islamic organisations can certify Halal meat and meat products. The certification is also back by Australian government assurance that the product has be produced in accordance with Islamic Shari'aa standards.


All Australian Halal red meat and offal for export is identified with the Official Halal Mark. This mark is only placed on product produced under the Approved Arrangement with meets all the requirements for Halal product, and is applied using security controlled official government stamps.

The Official Halal Mark enables an export registered establishment preparing Halal red meat and red meat products to be identified through the inclusion of the establishment’s registration number in the mark.

Where Halal meat and offal is moved from the slaughter establishments to another export approved establishment such as a boning room or cold store, the Halal status of the product must be included on an official Meat Transfer Certificate. This certificate attests to the Halal status of the product and provides traceable identity form the slaughter establishment to the other Halal approved registered export establishments.

Halal slaughtered meat packed for export receives an official halal meat certificate, signed by both a department authorized office and a representative of an Approved Islamic Organisation. The department signature on the official Halal red meat certificate attests that the regulatory requirements have been fulfilled and that the Halal product has been correctly identified and segregated to ensure its integrity; while the signing official from the Approved Islamic Organisation certifies that the Halal product has been produced in compliance with the correct religious requirements. Currently the official Halal certificate may be produced either manually or electronically using the department export documentation system (EXDOC).
