The Certification Process
The Certification process requires your mobile application to pass up to five Review Gates. Each Gate is designed to help get your mobile application to the next level, by partnering with various teams across the KP enterprise to ensure that it meets all of our standards and requirements as outlined in the National Policy.
Here is what to expect during the Certification process:

2 – Handoff
Participate in an intake meeting with your Engagement Manager. Once project requirements are defined, your Engagement Manager will warmly hand off the project to your Certification Manager to begin the Certification process.
Your Certification Manager will submit intake forms for up to five Certification Review Gates. Learn more about these Gates on the Gates Overview page. The number of required Gates depends on the type of application category your app falls into.
4 – Assessment Findings
Gate Reviewers will share assessment findings with your Certification Manager. This includes testing of app & back-end systems, review of code, UX/UI design, and Support Model.
5 – Review Meeting
Your Certification Manager will set up a review meeting with you to review Gate assessments findings, as needed.
6 – Certification Complete
Once all Gates are completed, you will receive your official Certification documentation. Once Certification is complete, your application is ready for the next step in the Engagement process.
How long will my Certification take?
Average turnaround time is 6-8 weeks depending on the complexity of the app, readiness of the app, and the certification reviewers’ backlog.
