The Royal Institution of Surveyors Malaysia is the premier professional organization for the surveying profession.
His Royal Highness the Sultan of Selangor, Sultan Sharafuddin Idris Shah Alhaj Ibni Almarhum Sultan Salahuddin Abdul Aziz Shah Alhaj conferred the royal status to the then Institution of Surveyors, Malaysia (ISM) on 28 March 2011. This royal conferment is the first ever bestowed to any professional body or NGO in Malaysia. Subsequently, the former name, The Institution of Surveyors of Surveyors, Malaysia was changed to Royal Institution of Surveyors Malaysia (RISM). RISM is further elevated and needless to say proud to have His Royal Highness the Sultan of Selangor as its royal patron.
