The Majlis Ugama Islam Singapura (Muis) introduced the Singapore Muis Halal Quality Management System (HalMQ), a set of systems-based Halal requirements that is benchmarked against international known standards such as ISO and HACCP, starting 1 March 2008. 

HalMQ has since been made compulsory for compliance by all Muis Halal applicants/certificates holders effective 1 January 2010 to achieve these objectives:

1) Enhance Halal compliance through a more structured and systematic approach
2) Increase competitive advantage of certified companies
3) Further increase credibility of Singapore Halal certification
4) Meet rising expectation of Muslim consumers
5) Widen international recognition of Singapore Halal certification
