Certify and Publish Your Skill

After you design, build, and test your skill, you're ready to certify and publish your skill. To receive certification, your skill must meet requirements for policy, security, functionality, and voice interface and user experience. After your skill passes certification testing, you can publish your skill in the Amazon Alexa Skills Store. The Alexa Skills Kit (ASK) includes guidelines and tools to certify and publish skills.

For smart home skills and devices, Amazon has additional certification programs to establish your product's compatibility with Alexa prior to publishing the skill.
