HFA Impartiality Committee
We have established an independent Impartiality Committee to provide continued confidence in the HFA by the community, stakeholders and wider halal industry. This Committee will ensure and confirm that all HFA’s decisions are based on independent confirmation of conformity and are not swayed by any other interests / outside factors.Details of all of HFA’s financial and corporate dealings with clients will be available to the Impartiality Committee to inspect, and regular meetings will take place to ensure continued compliance and impartiality.
Our Impartiality Committee will also put measures in place to ensure that:
HFA auditors always reveal and disclose any potential compromises of impartiality and probable conflicts of interests in regards to any of our clients / business that we deal with.
