view this page in Romanian language

HAQ Greece is opening the path for your exports to the Gulf Area  

To support your exports to the Gulf area, HAQ Greece has successfully been accredited by Emirates International Accreditation Center (EIAC) and has received the relative certificate with number HB-CB-063.  In the official website of eiac you will see that HAQ Greece already appears in the directory of halal certification bodies (please go to and choose Greece).


HAQ Greece is the first certification body in Greece and the Balkan area accredited by EIAC, which is a prerequisite to allow meat and meat processing products to enter the markets of UAE and Saudi Arabia. Therefore, all HAQ Greece certificates that are issued according to the GSO standards will also bear the signet of eiac and sfda:


United Arab Emirates – Ministry of Industry and Advanced Technology (ESMA)

Apart from EIAC accreditation, HAQ Greece applied for registration by the Ministry of Industry and Advanced Technology to be enlisted in the halal approved certification bodies. As a result HAQ Greece is now enlisted as number 86 in the list of ESMA Approved Certification Bodies, being the only body from Greece or the Balkans that appears in this list – you can access the list from the below mentioned link

In effect all products certified by HAQ Greece can be imported to UAE with the halal mark that we will provide, which is the following:


In the case that a company wishes to use the UAE national halal mark it should buy the right to use this logo from Ministry of Industry and Advanced Technology (ESMA) – more information is to be found in the official website of MoIAT in the link:


Saudi Arabia - Saudi Food and Drug Authority (SFDA)

HAQ Greece has already signed a contract with Saudi Food and Drug Administration (SFDA) and our clients are allowed to use HAQ logo (asabove)  when exporting in that country. HAQ Greece now appears in the SFDA’s list of Recognized Halal Certification Bodies, bearing number 80.

You can find the full list in the directory of sfda in its official website, under section “/our customers/ list of cooperation bodies”
