IHAF’s Members’ web application will allow its members to communicate and process all their requests digitally as well as permit potential ones to apply for membership online with ease
Dubai: The International Halal Accreditation Forum (IHAF) has launched its enhanced and more robust brand feel, an improved website, and a new web application as part of its staunch commitment to be the only international forum unifying halal practices through standardization of halal criteria among assessment bodies.
The new digital infrastructure of IHAF consists of the new digital-friendly brand, dynamic website, an automated members’ management system, and members’ web application. The members’ application, which can be accessed through www.ihaforum.ae, is deemed a progressive leap as it allows interactive communication between IHAF’s members in real-time. Members can efficiently process all their requests digitally, while future ones can apply for membership online with ease.
Considering the necessity in ensuring business continuity and support, the needs of all IHAF stakeholders will be met through utilizing the digitized business processes. The new website and web application will also include an automated voting system that will approve all submissions, helping speed up the process of new memberships as well as requests from existing members.
Recently, the industry turned to off-site assessments as a response to the impact of movement restrictions and the closing of borders due to the pandemic. Members highlighted in the 8th IHAF Multi-Lateral Recognition meeting that remote auditing for the conformity assessment activities could make recognition wider, generate more schemes, and save more time.
The need to enhance digitalization has also led to the launch of the new brand, website, and members’ web application to ease the process for the members, as well as train the halal sector to cope with all facets of innovation—solidifying further the unification of halal standards. IHAF plans to continue its journey of streamlining the business process in the future and incorporating essential tools that could support the halal industry.
