The accrediting of Halal Conformity Assessment Bodies will be carried out by NAH and will be in accordance with latest UAE.S 2055-2 and the relevant ISO 17011 standards.

This means that the Hungarian companies will be able to accredit their products on home turf and will have access to the enormous, and ever growing market covered by ESMA.
