I was called out to change all the breakers in a 100A residental panel. The panel wasn't marked in any way to ID it. The existing breakers were a mish-mash of various old breaker types. As best I could tell I thought it may be a murry type?? The inspector came out (young guy) and said I had to prove those were the right type of breakers for the panel and to "find it" on the internet. Sheesh@!!
Id tell the home owners what the inspector said and then tell them I have no way of "proving" what the panel is so you'll need a new panel. Let them deal with the inspector, I bet he'll change his tune.

The reason so many mfgs make that type of breakers is to have their product fit the maximum number of panels. How can an inspector require proof? either they fit or they don't. Generic panels accept any breaker that will fit. It could be ite/siemens, milbank, midwest, CH, murray. The style of neutral liiks siemens or challenger to me. Perhaps inside the meter socket will be a mfg id...Ask your inspector what constitutes proof and ask who his boss is. Sounds like the peckerwood has a tiny bit of power and wants to have you do some kinda dance for him.
