There is a legal requirement to obtain a completion certificate from a qualified electrician, for any work you do that requires a mains connection. For any work within circuits a minor works certificate should be obtained. Turn off the power and remove the fuse from any circuit you are working on. Make sure no-one can turn the power on by mistake. Use only approved materials. How it works An electrical supply will come to your home your home at a main, sealed fuse called a service head and from there will go to your meter via one large red and one large black wire.
