Received: 30 May 2019 / Revised: 30 July 2019 / Accepted: 3 August 2019 / Published: 5 August 2019 While legislation can be implemented, amended or revoked according to the requirements of a given time period, this is very difficult or even impossible with religious laws due to their sanctity.
Faithful Muslims believe in the sanctity of the main Islamic laws (Quran and Hadiths) because, according to them, they originated from heavenly and divine sources (God and his prophet Muhammad). The technological means of the meat industry are constantly evolving to meet the requirements of the present day and may sometimes be inconsistent with ancient religious norms. Recently, greater attention has been paid to the halal meat industry due to the increased size of the Muslim community in Europe; the opportunity of producing and exporting meat and meat products to the Islamic world; and the ease of delivery, trade and transport.

On 29 March, the Flemish Government reached agreement on a total ban on slaughter without stunning.
From 2019, when slaughtering sheep, small ruminants or poultry, it will be compulsory to use reversible electronarcosis. As soon as the technology has also been perfected for calves and cattle, it will also be used for them. Until then, post-cut stunning is compulsory for these animals. This puts Flanders in the vanguard (albeit not alone) for improvements to animal welfare: un-stunned slaughter is already banned in Denmark, parts of Finland, Germany, Cyprus, Slovenia, Sweden and the United Kingdom. Post-cut stunning is standard in Estonia, Finland, Latvia and Slovakia. In his final report, independent intermediary Piet Vantemsche concludes: ‘The way in which EU Member States deal with the derogation from the requirement to stun animals in the case of ritual slaughter at slaughterhouses is very diverse.

There was a controversy in Austria recently surrounding halal-certified products.
An Austrian supermarket chain removed halal-certified food from its shelves following an outcry from consumers. Business involving halal certification nevertheless appears to be flourishing: the Austrian standards institute recently began work that led to the drafting of a domestic standard, ONR 142000. Efforts are also being made to introduce a European CEN standard for halal products (CEN/TC 425). A CEN working party had already been set up in 2012 (CEN/BT WG 212). Its religious advisers included the European Council for Fatwa and Research (ECFR).
In one consultation, the ECFR opposed any stunning of animals before slaughter on the grounds that: ‘Many Scientifics [sic!] — What information does the Commission have on the drafting of a European halal certification standard CEN 425/TC, currently marked ‘disbanded’ on the CEN homepage?

PARLIAMENT_UK 18/02/15 Religious Slaughter of Animals - Commons Library Standard Note. There has been growing public and parliamentary focus in the last year on methods used for religious slaughter, welfare concerns about whether animals are stunned before slaughter, which food outlets are serving halal meat as a matter of course to all customers, and whether all meat prepared by halal and kosha methods is being labelled as such.
UK and EU slaughter regulations set minim welfare standards at slaughter and require all animals to be pre-stunned before slaughter to minimise their suffering. Member States may exempt slaughter in accordance with religious beliefs from the pre-stunning requirement and the UK implements this derogation. The Government has said that it would prefer all animals to be pre-stunned before slaughter on welfare grounds but it observes the rights of religious communities and the Prime Minister has said he will never ban religious slaughter practices.
