Jordan Institution for Standards and Metrology (JISM) is responsible for the development of Jordanian Standards in the fields of foodstuffs, chemicals, construction materials, electrical and electronic equipment and appliances, textiles and paper, environment and safety, mechanical and manufacturing engineering, information technology, testing and metrology.

JISM is also responsible for Legal Metrology in Jordan in order to control measuring instruments used by and for the public, such as taximeters, fuel flowmeters, gas cylinders, weights, balances, weighbridges, clinical thermometers and blood pressure measuring instruments.

JISM grants the Jordanian Quality Mark for national products. The system incorporates type tests of samples taken from the market and the factory premises followed by the evaluation of the quality system according to the requirements of ISO 9000 standards.
