Abstract

Coronavirus Disease (Covid-19) has changed the way people do activities, especially in using digital devices. The existence of the Large-Scale Social Restrictions (PSBB) policy and the appeal for social distancing have led to more and more consumers making transactions online. However, the policy framework and consumer rights regarding online shopping are lacking. In fact, Bank Indonesia recorded e-commerce transactions of Rp 13 trillion per month in 2019. Without prioritizing consistent efforts to protect consumers, it is feared that consumer confidence in making transactions will decline, which will affect consumption growth. The halalness of a product is a mandatory requirement for every consumer, especially Muslim consumers. In the international trade system, the issue of certification and marking of halal products has received good attention in order to provide protection for Muslim consumers around the world as well as a strategy to face the challenges of globalization. In Indonesia, laws and regulations have been established long before the issuance of Law Number 33 of 2014 concerning Halal Product Guarantee (UUJPH). This paper examines the regulation of halal products before UUJPH and regulation of halal products in UUJPH. With this regulation, it further emphasizes the urgency of the halal-haram issue in the production chain from business actors to consumers and is a concrete manifestation of the state in protecting consumers.
