Public Education
In an effort to provide public education on Halal matters, Muis has been engaging the public via twitter. Twitter users are welcome to tweet out their queries with regards to Halal and Halal Certi cation to us @halalSG.

Complaint/feedback management
Muis adopts a tripartite halal family approach, comprising of:
i) Muis – conducts announced and
unannounced inspections (frequency depends on the risk categorisation of the establishment); investigates and follow-up on all halal-related complaints pertaining to the establishment
ii) Halal certi cate holders – ensure that the Muis Halal Certi cation Conditions are complied with
iii) Public – provides a source of check and balance
Consumers who come across companies with doubtful Halal practices may send in their complaints and feedback to Muis and we will investigate the feedback thoroughly.
