Prepare to submit for certification

To submit a Matter integration for certification, you must include the following for review:

  • Test Results review — Validates Google Home Test Suite results and any additional materials that apply to the device certification.
  • Company profile review — Confirms the accuracy of the company information. You will not be able to apply for certification if you have not completed your company profile. Make sure you use the CSA vendor ID in the Matter integration. Complete the vendor ID verification form for us to verify.
  • Policy review — Verifies that your device complies to Google's policy guidelines.

Also do the following to pass certification review:

  • Upload the before and after product images before creating a version.
  • Field Trial needs to stop before submitting a version for certification. If Field Trial is needed, you will need to create another version with the Field Trial results.

Once all reviews are complete, you can submit your integration for certification.
