I remember encountered several bugs in those compilers as well they are usually far behind when adopting the new language standards. Compare this to GCC, when was the last time you encountered a bug in that compiler? I can't remember any.

You may mean different things by ‘certified’.

In some contexts, the term refers to a formally verified compiler, like, cakeml or compcert, which has been mathematically proven not to have any compilation bugs.  I would be inclined to trust such a compiler.

One can learn by watching by following development of critical open-source projects - OpenSSL, Tor or different Unix kernels for example. But other than them, I feel critical systems design is an art that tends be locked in the proprietary world - correct me if I'm wrong.

That knowledge is available if one searches for it.
