Splicing Service Neutral in Panel

Someone spliced the service entrance neutral in the panel and then fastened it to the neutral bus. Ok or not?

The neutral can be spliced but it needs to be done with a connector that is listed for the size and type of conductor. If I had to guess that gray wirenut is not rated for the conductors shown. Is that tinned copper?

What Robert said, but likely a bushing would also be needed to protect the conductors from the metal opening in the enclosure, although I’m not familiar with your code requirements.

There is not much detail given the narrow scope of the photo but from what is visible I would guess that there are more problems with this installation.

When I find something like this I will certainly find other issues
