-Check what your customer requires, You can use BS7671 certs or download green NICEIC certs (you don't need to be registered with anyone).

-Give insurance firm a call or offer customer a guarantee.(you should have liability though)

-put your own details on the cert because your doing the work.

Their seem's to be confusion in the industry regarding just about everything!

Some customers ask for NICEIC / ECA forms because they think to be a competent electrician you "must" be a member of one of these, totally untrue!
All electrical work conforms to BS7671 & the IEE have created certs so you can conform to it.

Thanks sparks72 for your answer,

its a bit confusion on the chapter Certification, this is good idea for someone to write a book to clarify this confusion for all of us.

Thanks anyway
