Default Electrical Panel

How can I determine if a electrical panels needs to be updated? I just inspected a house with a 30 year old panel with 2 circuits that have double taps.

Thanks

Do you have pictures?

Double taps are allowed on some brands, like Square D Homeline.

Have you taken the NACHI Electrical Course yet?

Actually it is up to the repairing electrical contractor to make that determination
