To the best of my understanding this new teudat kashrut level is an intermediary level, rating a restaurant between regular and mehadrin.
It details some of the criteria.
1. The meat is under the supervision of the Chief Rabbinate of Israel, imported “glatt mehadrin” shechita from abroad.
2. Poultry is “mehadrin” and certified from one of the local rabbinates in Israel.
3. The greens are “Gush Katif” type, grown in hothouses and free of infestation. (this is supposed to be the case for all restaurants certified by the Jerusalem Rabbinate, including regular non-mehadrin).
4. Stringent adherence to Bishul Yisrael for all (including Beit Yosef).
