Abstract

The provisions of the halal standards in force in the Republic of Turkey and the United Arab Emirates are examined. The differences in the requirements for halal products established in the indicated countries are analyzed. Halal products are gaining popularity in the consumer market. According to the results of the report on the Islamic economy, the growth in popularity by 2020 will be 6.5%. At the same time, there is a constant trend o f growth in market volumes. There is a report from the Center for Development of Islamic Economy in Dubai that Muslims spent $ 2.2 trillion in 2018, while by 2020 this amount was $ 2.4 trillion. The global development of the halal food market and its frequent discrepancies in the concept, the lack of uniform rules for handling products leads to disunity of the rules for handling products. It should be remembered that the Republic of Turkey and the United Arab Emirates, being members of the Islamic Cooperation, are also the main suppliers of halal goods. Moreover, both states should have the same requirements for halal, which nevertheless differ. In the Republic of Turkey, halal food requirements and slaughter rules are set out in one standard TS OIC/SMIIC 1 “General Guidelines for Halal Foods”. In the UAE, the same requirements are set out in two standards: UAE.S GSO 993 “Requirements for slaughtering animals in accordance with Islamic rules” and UAE.S GSO 2055-1 “Halal Food. Part 1. General Requirements”. A study of the requirements for halal products and processes, set out in the standards of the two countries, showed that on fundamental issues they coincide. But there are also certain differences in the requirements that can become a problem when supplying the same products to Turkey and the UAE.
