Public Services Department

The Public Services Department (PSD) is one of the oldest local departments in Ras Al Khaimah, where the late Sheikh Saqr bin Mohammed Al Qasimi issued the decree of its establishment in 1965. However, the department appeared with its modern organization as an entity with several services in 1985 when the first law was issued to identify its specializations and grant it various authorities in the field of supervision on different facilities which provide infrastructure services, civil projects, and services for citizens. This law was the march of developmental breakthrough in the Emirate, as it witnessed an architectural and cultural renaissance that significantly strengthened the infrastructure of the Emirate.

In 2017, the executive Council of the Emirate of Ras Al Khaimah approved the restructuring of the public works and services department, and is replaced by Public Services Department. The PSD is followed by four agencies consisting of the Waste water agency, Waste management agency, Works agency and the landscape agency.

As Public Service department is a civil governing institution and the ultimate goal is to provide a sustainable and modern contemporary infrastructure for the residents. All the agencies strive to provide the best fit with the optimal utilization of resources. Every year the service projects are increasing at a count. PSD has always been the leading service provider contributing to economic, political, social and cultural development of Ras al khimah with the best practices in frame.
