The Islamic Information Documentation and Certification GmbH (IIDC) is an independent and internationally accredited inspection and certification center for halal foods and services. Our certifications are offered throughout Europe and extend to all commodities and services for which halal safety is a must for Muslims.
All of our qualified and dedicated staff members see offering top-quality halal commodities and services through our halal certification as an opportunity to provide a global service to Muslim consumers. With halal certification, we provide the economy with the opportunity to develop new markets around the world. Since problems or uncertainties regarding halal products are always cropping up in Europe, both in production and in consumption, the IIDC decided, after conducting in-depth research and studies, to create transparency in this area for the economy and for Muslims.
A progress report by
Günther Ahmed Rusznak
Founder, President, and CEO of IIDC/IIDZ
Halal certification is now a must in many areas. From the very beginning, we too clearly realized that mere knowledge of the canon in the Koran was no longer sufficient in the complex world of the food and services industry. Hence the first step was to create our own standard (ONR 142000), in which halal could be considered basically from the standpoint of religion, but also in light of the requirements of the industry.
Over time the standards and norms of the respective importing countries were adopted and just before our "12th birthday", we received one of the most highly respected accreditations (UAE.S.2055/GSO 2055/OIC/SMIIC) for our outstanding work.
Behind the letters and numbers, the registration is in the seven Emirates in UAE, in the seven GCC countries, and in the fifty-seven (57) OIC member countries. But our accreditations and recognitions go far beyond that, it is worldwide, our cooperation partners are found on every continent of the world, we speak their languages and the desire for perfection unites us.
With our Halal certification we enable the worldwide export of European goods to Islamic countries and countries with an Islamic population. We are proud of our many satisfied customers, our qualified employees, our four branches in Austria, Hungary, Germany and France and our most sincere aspiration is to serve business and Muslims around the world.
