Halal Australia will always endeavor to provide applicants with full details and explanations of the fees and charges involved prior to commencing work. Fees are charged according to each individual client’s needs and will vary depending on the:
- Product category
- Risk factors involved from a Halal and quality point of view
- Complexity of the work involved
- Nature of the company requiring certification
- Level of assistance required in developing and implementing Halal Quality Program
- Frequency of inspection visits
- Need for ongoing support systems
The following sections outline the main costs involved in the halal certification process:
INITIAL APPLICATION AND ASSESSMENT
Fees for the initial assessment are fixed as follows:
1. Non-refundable one-off application fee of $110.00 (GST inclusive) for the first site and $55.00 (GST inclusive) for each additional site, regardless of outcome. This fee is payable at the time your application is lodged. Processing will not commence until such payment is received.
2. The application processing fee stated above is separate to the costs for halal accreditation and certification, which will be estimated (with a quote provided) once an initial assessment is conducted of your application.
ACCREDITATION AND CERTIFICATION
Accreditation refers to the official recognition of a company’s suitability for preparing Halal goods on their premises. A fixed cost applies for the first manufacturing site, with secondary sites charged at a discounted rate. The price of accreditation varies according to the nature of the manufacturing premises, and is included in the quotation provided to your company after assessment. This quotation is normally provided within seven days of receipt of application.
Certification refers to the official recognition of individual products as complying with Halal requirements. Generally, products in low to medium risk categories that have fewer ingredients (up to ten ingredients) are charged at a minimal rate, with fees adjusted accordingly for products in higher risk categories and/or products that have a wider and more complex range of ingredients. Exact certification fees are determined after assessment of the nature of your products, and included in the quotation provided to your company.
In addition to maintaining their current certificate, many companies also prefer to feature our logo on their product packaging. As Halal Australia is internationally recognised in several countries, the Halal Australia logo helps to visibly identify your product as meeting halal requirements to both local and international consumers.
Inspection is a fundamental part of the certification and accreditation process. Inspections not only help us to better understand your company’s unique needs, but also encourage consumer trust and confidence in the integrity of halal certification processes.
Inspections usually occur on a yearly basis, and a standard inspection is normally up to two hours. Inspections are charged according to standard rates (such as ATO guidelines), with travelling expenses charged at cost basis.
