The IFIs need to confirm that they have met all the requirements and are operating in accordance with it. One of the primary objectives of SGF 2010 is to enhance the role of the Board of Directors (Board), Shariah Committee (SC) and the management in relation to Shariah matters, including enhancing the relevant key organs having the responsibility to execute the Shariah compliance and research functions aimed at the attainment of a Shariah based operating environment. Thus, this study investigates the enhancement programmes organized and participated by relevant key organs of the IFIs.
