You will need to contact the building control dept of the council in the borough in which the property is in. They will want to inspect the work at each stage of construction of the installation right from the start of the project. At the end you will have to test the installation and issue a Electrical Installation Certificate to both the client and the LABC.Of course there will be a LABC charge for all of this. Hope this helps.

Surely the whole point of this thread is that wannabysparky cannot certificate!!!
The only other way is check with the council and if they agree have a periodic certificate done on the whole premises afterwards. I am not sure they will be happy with that as design etc come into the equasion.
