Certified mods?

Just wondering if anybody might know what's involved with whether or not a mod is eligible for certification?
Of the 100+ mods now in the Workshop, I only ever see 1 or 2 listed as "certified" in the in-game list...
Maybe relevant to consoles somehow?

In spintires it was reserved for members of the development team.

I hope developers work with modders to have more certificate mods on the game this time around, there are already many mods that deserve a certification in the workshop
