Is there any code issue of how close a panel can be to a slop sink in a commercial building. I installed a 3 pahse 120/208 panel in a building and now they moved a sink that was further down the wall to 18 inches away from the edge of the panel. I still have my working clearnces, but is the sink to close for a code issue. If so please tell me where.

No NEC issue that I know of since your work space is still OK.
Few things are harder to put up with than the annoyance of a good example.
