Sector Updates – December 2015


December 2015

International Participation
New Field of Technical Activity – Halal
The International Organization for Standardization (ISO) has submitted a proposal for a new
field of activity on Halal. This new work item proposal has been submitted by the Emirates
Authority for Standardization & Metrology (ESMA) and the proposal details how strong
international demand for Halal products and services provides the opportunity for the
development of a work program focusing on this area.
The proposal lists various objectives and strategic goals for a future Halal-focused work
program, including:
• Develop and issue relevant standards and specifications in the field of processes and
management to ensure the safety, quality, and fitness of products in compliance with
Sharia laws and processes;
• Develop and issue internationally accepted standards to create a common platform for all
Halal products and services;
• Ensure proper awareness for both consumers and the public on Halal;
• Improve Halal products and ensure the services, systems, and other aspects are
satisfying the needs of governments and consumers;
• Identify current/future needs related to testing and verification schemes in JWG under the
leadership of CASCO (an ISO committee that works on issues relating to conformity
assessment);
• Identify and establish current/future needs related for Halal: testing, conformity
assessment, inspection, certification, and accreditation, and Halal marks of conformity on
cooperation with CASCO;
• Facilitate Halal trading without barriers;
• Satisfy Halal market needs and expectations;
For further information or to submit feedback, please contact Standards Australia
(bronwyn.walker@standards.org.au) by 9th of January 2016. All comments received will be
compiled and used in the development of a recommended Australian position.

International Participation
New Field of Technical Activity (NFTA) - Corrosion control engineering life cycle
ISO has received a proposal from SAC (China) and ANSI (USA) on Corrosion control
engineering life cycle.
The scope of the activity is:
The standardization of the corrosion control engineering life cycle, including the terms and
definitions, general requirements, and evaluation of the corrosion control engineering life cycle.
The engineering life cycle is defined as a system view of the structure to be protected from
corrosion that includes the initial design and development based on material selection and
protective measures through the construction, inspection, assessment, maintenance, and
decommissioning at the end of life of the structure.
For further information or to submit feedback, please contact Standards Australia
(adam.stingemore@standards.org.au) by 29th of January 2016. All comments received will be
