Jordan - JSMO

Activities:

Most important initiatives:

Development of information on standardization and standards for inclusion in students' books.
Participation in voluntary education programmes.

Impact on public authorities, stakeholder groups or others:

Other qualitative impacts: No material on specific standards is made available to teachers and students but rather general information on the existence of standards is given in the teaching material for students.
Awareness of the importance of standards: Public authorities and citizens are more aware of the importance of standards and standardization, noticable from customer requirements and comments, e.g. citizens require the existence of standards for certain products of importance to their lives. In addition, university students are always sent to JSMO to search for information on standards. Finally, customers can now really differentiate between standards and technical regulations from the legal perspective.
