Global Halal Data Pool (GHDP)

Malaysia is once more making another tremendous contribution to the global Halal industry with the introduction of an integrated live Halal registry or Data pool. The world’s first Global Halal Data Pool is powered by the globally recognised and much coveted GS1 standard, which in turn will connect Halal Suppliers to buyers across 140 global markets.

Recognising the importance of managing product data and its importance in business growth, Halal Industry Development Corporation (HDC) spearheads the initiative to launch the world’s first data pool of Halal products. As the projects lead developer and provider, local solutions provider Serunai Commerce Sdn Bhd (875806-M) has been appointed to develop, coordinate, regulate and roll out the GHDP with the support and participation of JAKIM, Department of Standards Malaysia, SME Corp Malaysia and GS1.

Muslim communities locally and abroad are set to gain tremendously from GHDP, as it will function as the embedded fulcrum for international Halal trade and integrity. Developing Muslim majority countries will no longer need to make the daunting investment required to develop their own local Data Pools as GHDP can easily be adopted by incorporating the verification of local standards into its system.

Adoption and subscription to the standard especially for SME’s (Small Medium Enterprises) and smaller businesses can be challenging, for it requires in-depth supply chain knowledge and most importantly the relaying of key product information. GHDP overcomes these challenges and issues with its approach of blending financial incentives, guidance, access and strategic partnerships all under a single systemised platform.

GHDP is actively engaging over 200 global certification bodies and councils to enrich the platform and ensure the Halal integrity of products throughout its supply chain via its live Halal validation engine.
