Add Word Macros to "Trusted Source List"

I have developed a Word VBA Addin.  I have added it to the default Start Up location.  When I open up Word now I get the "Enable/Disable Macros" message.  It seems to suggest I can add the Macros to a "Trusted Source List" so the message doesn't keep appearing.  

How do I add the macros to the "Trusted Source List".

You can test it with a program called SelfCert, but that will not give global certification

However, this article claims that it can be made to work inside an organisation.
