Certify in what sense?   Unlike, for instance, java, there isn't a third
party who would run some tests and issue you with a stamp of approval.
Essentially as software authors, you can build your software on FreeBSD,
run whatever tests you think necessary to prove a suitable level of
functionality and then market your software as 'FreeBSD supported' all
on your own recognizance.

There are other similar support offerings available in certain
circumstances.  For instance you can get your FreeBSD based product
registered as "Supported" on Microsoft Azure.

If you're interested in FreeBSD as a commercial platform, then I'd
suggest getting in touch with the FreeBSD Foundation
(info at just on general principles.  Promoting
commercial use of FreeBSD is a big part of the Foundation's remit.
