The Certificate Panel appears on all item pages just below the item image and details. It provides information about the certificate status, the level of verification and the amount of information provided.
On the left-hand side of the certificate panel, you will see the certificate status which is an easy way of understanding the level of verification.

The rest of the certificate panel is divided into three sections.
This section includes information about the Creator and the Issuer. A verified tick next to each name indicates that they are verified.
Certificate details indicate the level of verification as well as the level of metadata (information about the item) provided.
