Datuk Fadilah is the Director General of the national standards and accreditation body, Standars Malaysia, a government agency under the then Ministry of Science, Technology & Innovation (MOSTI). She plays a critical role in positioning Malaysian capabilities and potential, through her strong advocacy for standards, certification and accreditation for local and global competitiveness.

Besides executing the functions as mandated by the Standards of Malaysia Act 1996 (Act 549), she has extensive experience in international negotiations including the Malaysia-US Free Trade Agreement Negotiation for the Technical Barriers to Trade Chapter. Fadilah’s active involvement at ASEAN, APEC and international levels has placed her to become a member in the international policy forum ie the ISO Council for the terms 2013 - 2015 and 2017 – 2019. She also sits as a member of the ISO Advisory Group to the Chair of a Policy Committee for Developing Countries.  During her tenure at the ISO Council 2013 – 2015, she played a vital role in institutionalising, for the first time ever, the ISO regional office out from Geneva, ie Singapore.

Recognising the importance of accreditation for laboratories or facilities that provide testing services in Malaysia, Fadilah has created the Persatuan Makmal Akreditasi Malaysia (PMAM) in 2015. Datuk Fadilah’s vision in establishing the PMAM is to have an official platform for the labs/facilities to get together and in turn they will be able to grow and prosper together in their business both locally and abroad.

In the world of standards, Fadilah is a strong advocator for the brand “Creating a Quality Culture” targeting the young and future generation. Amongst the most popular national program that catches the attention of the young Malaysians is the National Standards Olympiad which she hopes will become one of the national icon program for our children.

Fadilah has a strong passion for “halal” activities too. Most notable, she successfully developed the first halal standard, MS 1500 in 2004 entitled “Halal Food - Production, Preparation, Handling And Storage - General Guidelines” that is currently being used everywhere in the world apart from Malaysia. To date, 14 halal standards ranging from food right up to lifestyle have been developed and used, not only by JAKIM but also countries such as Australia, Brazil and Japan as well as international organisations including the OIC SMIIC (Standards & Metrology Institute of the Islamic Countries). Fadilah currently sits in the OIC SMIIC Board of Directors for the term 2018 – 2020. In 2016, she was awarded “Tokoh Maulidur Rasul” at the National Level by HRH the Yang di Pertuan Agong.

Known to be a thorough professional, Fadilah promotes values of commitment, cohesiveness and credibility at her workplace, positively influencing good governance, economic performance, national development and above all, the people’s well-being.

Fadilah graduated from the Salford University, England in Health & Environmental Physics (majoring in nuclear power radiation protection) in 1984.  She attended the Premium Business Management Program by Harvard Business School in 2010; as well as attended the Senior Leadership Program: Branding Leaders, Branding the Nation organised by the Razak School of Government (RSOG) in partnership with Said Business of Oxford University in 2015.

In 2013, she was conferred by the Rt Hon Prime Minister of Malaysia as a Fellow of the Academy of Sciences (ASM) carrying the tittle FASc.
