A surface that is certified to beauty and durability, and also safety and building standards.

Can I use passive verb here?

    Pretty well (looks like).
    You also can use:
    A surface that is certified for (the) beauty and durability, and also safety and building standards.
    A surface that is certified to the beauty and durability, and also safety and building standards.

    You can say "A surface that is certified to safety and building standards", but "A surface that is certified to beauty and durability" makes no sense. The essential word is "standards". Certification requires something that can be certified, and you cannot certify beauty or durability. You can, of course, certify that something meets a durability standard.

    You also can use:
    No, not if you are writing English.
