You should of recieved a certificate for the electrical instalation

Was the electrician NICEIC Registered ?

If they were not you can have the work tested and a certificate will be issued by a registered electrician.

I would get this done ASAP.

the competent person doesn't need to be niceic registered, this winds me up! as long as they are part p registered by either nic eic, eca, napit or elecsa!

but yes you should of received a cert, but unfortunatly you can't get another electrician to sign it off, as we are only supposed to "self certify our own work" not someone elses, so what the previous answer says is not true!
you may find someone too do it but they are not ment too.

In one word, YES, all electrical installations require certification and if you have had gas installed then you should also have a certificate for that

Yes you should have had an EIC issued but contrary to what some will tell you they dont have to be NICEIC registered this is a myth (perpetuated by NICEIC electricians usualy)they can be members of any Part P scheme,they could even do the work if not with a scheme but this would involve notifying building control at different stages of the job.
