If you are having the fusebox replaced, all that is required is an Electrical Installation Certificate (EIC) for this work. Make sure that you use a registered electrician to do the work as fusebox (consumer unit) replacement is notifiable under Part P of the Building Regulations and a registered electrician can self-certify their work. If you were to use a non-registered electrician, you would have to notify your local Building Control before the work was carried out.

You can find a registered electrician local to you here.
