  • You can find the Windows 8 app certification requirements here.

    Without commenting on certification, you don't give enough information about your design to know if a back button is appropriate or not. In general, if going back makes sense then it is better to have a back button than not. See the Navigation patterns documentation for a discussion of different navigation patterns including when a back button makes sense and when it doesn't.
