Abstract
As the country with athelargestMoslem population in the world, the study on the guarantee of halal products in Indonesia has not been optimally implemented. Currently, not all products circulating in the society are guaranteed to be halal, yet. Whereas the consumption of halal products is a major requirement for Moslems. To guarantee the halalness of a product circulating in the community, Indonesia comes by issuing UU 33/2014 concerning the Council of Halal Product Guarantee. Based on the mandate of the law in article 4 it is mentioned that inflow, outflow, and circulation of the products in the territory of Indonesia shall be halal certified by 2019. To obtain halal certification, a product will be examined and/or tested by a Halal Inspecting Agency that meets requirements such as laboratory ownership, researchers, and offices. Within this context, universities as the center of excellence which has an inherent obligation in scientific development and community service is a highly prepared institution that also meets the requirements to become a Halal Inspection Agency. Besides having infrastructure readiness in the form of laboratory equipment and office infrastructure facilities, some universities also have experts who have the experience to be a halal auditor of MajelisUlama Indonesia (MUI). Using qualitative research methods, this paper describes the strategies of higher education institutions, specifically,universities can actively contribute to supports Indonesia's halal product guarantee policy in 2019. First, higher education institutions especially universities can be the accountable Halal Inspection Agencies. Second, the halal research centers can engage in an active cooperation and partnership with other halal research centers in Indonesia or abroad, to gain more benefits in the dynamics of halal-related studies.
