On Monday, June 19, 2023 (19/06/2023), BAZNAS launched the Zakat Compliance Label for companies marked by the symbolic signing of the Zakat Compliance Label certificate by the Chairman of BAZNAS, Prof. Dr. KH. Noor Achmad, MA. This certificate will prove that the company has been obedient in paying its zakat. This event aims to encourage companies to pay corporate zakat through BAZNAS.

Besides being attended by BAZNAS Chairman, the event was also attended by Rizaludin Kurniawan, M.Si (BAZNAS Commissioner), Dr. H. Amirsyah Tambunan, M.A (Secretary General of MUI), Drs. H. Tarmizi Tohor, M.A (Director of Zakat and Waqf Empowerment of Ministry of Religious Affairs), and representatives of companies receiving Zakat Compliance certificates. According to Noor, MUI's presence in this forum is very important because they will work together with BAZNAS in conducting partnerships related to the provision of the Halal Label and Zakat Compliance Label, as well as synergizing with the Ministry of Religious Affairs. 

At this event, BAZNAS gave Zakat Compliance certificates to several companies such as PT Paragon Technology and Innovation, PT Asuransi Sinar Mas, Bank Syariah Indonesia, PT Penjaminan Jamkrindo Syariah, PT Asuransi Ramayana, PT Capital Life Syariah, BRI Asuransi Indonesia, and PT Jasaraharja Putera Syariah.
