Surya Nita; Rahul Ardian Fikri;
After even 5 years of ratification, the Law of Act No. 33 of 2014 concerning Guaranteed Halal Products need to analyze the application of these rules in the regions. Not only in the regions, but the implementation of the implementing rules of this provision has not yet been issued by the government regarding the implementation of the protection of halal products. In Indonesia, halal product certification is carried out by the Indonesian MUI which is requested by producers based on the Fatwa of the MUI. There needs to be involvement of the State in the halal certification process, because the status of the Indonesian MUI is not a state institution or government organ, but it can be given public authority to carry out certain functions under the law. The formulation of the problem is how the application of Law No. 33 of 2014 concerning Guaranteed Halal Products on the Policies of the Regional Government of Medan City. This study is a normative juridical study of the application of legal norms to Law No. 33 of 2014 concerning Guaranteed Halal Products in the Regional Policy of Medan City. The Medan City Government has not made a policy regarding guarantee of halal products in the City of Medan through Regional Regulations and Mayor Regulations in terms of guaranteeing every halal product marketed in the community. Asking the Medan City Government must play an active role in realizing the guarantee of halal products by establishing regional regulations that regulate the guarantee of halal products in Medan in order to realize the guarantee of halal products in the city of Medan.
