Supported by more than 500 science specialists, researchers, technical support staff, highly skilled management, and faculty, the RSS has truly become recognized as a local, regional and international research and development hub.

Born out of the great heart and spirit of His Majesty the Late King Hussein and HRH Prince Hassan in 1970, the Royal Scientific Society has, since day one, aimed high to be the local and regional reference point of knowledge for science and technology using modern engineering research as a base to power economic development and social progress.

RSS proactively guides, supports and strengthens large governmental research projects and commercial incubators for both small and medium enterprises. Industrial firms contract RSS to assess potential impacts on the environment and to recommend practical solutions to minimize and control pollutants. RSS conducts standardised laboratory inspections on many of the foods and products consumed daily by Jordanians.

A wide range of products are continuously inspected & tested including: detergents, paints, textiles, paper products, lubricants, industrial and medicinal gases, in addition to building materials to ensure conformity with national and international standards.

In order to ensure compliance with the Ministry of Health’s (MOH) mandatory equipment servicing requirements as well as guarantee that all the equipment is in proper working order, the (MOH) contracts the RSS to manage, service and maintain the Kingdom’s vast supply of medical equipment.

Since its inception, RSS has led by example. As an independent industry leader, RSS has been at the forefront of Jordanian renewable energy development and research, from wind powered water pumps and aerial generators to solar water heater panels and solar receptors.

With the vast expertise accumulated by the Society over the years, it has established itself as a pioneer within the broader international scientific community. RSS laboratories enjoy close personal co-operative ties with local, regional, and international scientific organizations.
