No, the certificate will be filled in by the person or dealer who did the check...not an independant body.
the hab check should include a Gas safety check, an electrical safety check and a damp check as a priority and many other checks as well.
many dealers and independant traders will perform a habitation check....some will even come to your home or work place for a fee.
many do hab checks 'on the spot' at the various motorhome shows
it isnt a legal requirement (though, for gas in particular, it should be) but is advisable on safety grounds, as well as catching any unseen problems early....damp is a motorhome killer.
