It would if the panel is labeled as such for it's intent.
However from what I can gather on this picture the intend of the panel on the left is supposed to be a sub-panel format without a main breaker setup because of the main lug locations ( IMHO )
Now nothing in the 6 disconnect ruling that I am aware of would disregard the downstream circuit breakers and from what i can gather the entire system is protected by the 60A breaker in the far left panel.....
Each breaker MUST be labeled in a 6 disc. grouping which should be noted on THAT specific panel.
I will say without looking at it in too much detail because I do not like giving comments on pictures that I can't physically be at to grasp..
I would make sure the middle panel ( which becomes the Sub-Panel ) is done correctly..ie. seperation of neutrals and grounds and I notice the GEC comes into the middle panel.....In all cases I am aware of the GEC should be run into the MAIN panel which in this setup is really the one on the left....and the 4 wire requirement for the Sub-panel should take care of the grounding and neutrals in the middle panel....
All seems Half A@@ed backwards to me...but again what do I know....
