ALHUMDOLILLAH – with immense pleasure we would like to announce that Pakistan is the first country in the world to award HALAL accreditation to certifying bodies / organizations. SGS Pakistan (Pvt.) Limited became the first ever certification body awarded with the HALAL accreditation from PNAC (Pakistan National Accreditation Council) – a subsidiary of Ministry for Science and Technology – Pakistan. The accreditation certificate was awarded at an event organized by Pakistan National Accreditation Council (PNAC) on the occasion of world accreditation day on June 9, 2015 at Ramada hotel – Islamabad.


The certificate was presented by the federal minister for science & technology Mr. Rana Tanveer Hussain to Mr. Farrukh Mazhar, (Managing Director) & Mr. Khawaja Faisal Javed (Sr. Manager Operations), who were representing SGS Pakistan in the event. Others present at the event were director general PNAC Ms. Ismat Gul Khattak, federal secretary Mr. Kamran Ali Qureshi, other government officials and Industry professionals It was reiterated that by attaining the accreditation, HALAL certification by SGS will gain worldwide acceptance.

SGS Pakistan (Pvt.) Limited embarked on this journey of HALAL certification back in 2012 through the rigorous / dire efforts of its highly professional team. In this short span of time SGS Pakistan has HALAL certified more than 10 industries throughout Pakistan.

The primary concern is quality rather than the quantity. For any Industry to gain HALAL certification it is a requirement that the certification has to be endorsed by a team of qualified professional auditors, technical experts and mostly importantly the Shariah Alims – who authenticates the religious requirements to be met. SGS Pakistan believes that apart from commercial aspects HALAL certification is more of a religious obligation conferred to us – which we will try to meet to the best possible manner
