The Indonesian government's Religious Affairs Ministry's new halal certification body, the Halal Products Certification Agency (Badan Penyelenggara Jaminan Produk, BPJPH), will start operating in early 2017. The new body will facilitate the administrative process of halal certification, which involves receiving all applications, collecting their fees, and issuing certificates, according to Nur Syam. It will work parallel with the country’s sole halal certifier since 1998, the Indonesia Ulama Council’s Food and Drug Analysis Agency (LPPOM MUI). The audit and review of the products to be certified will be done by a Halal Audit Agency (Lembaga Pemeriksa Halal, LPH), which will have to seek MUI’s approval before certification can be issued.
