Resolution:
Most General Duty Switches are suitable for use as service equipment when equipped with a factory or field-installed neutral assembly or a field-installed service grounding kit.
NOTES:
1) The following General Duty Safety Switches DO NOT have solid neutral assemblies that can be used in the switch. DU321, DU321RB, DU322, DU322RB and DU325. If a neutral is required consider using a Heavy Duty Switch.
2) If the switch is older and already installed, CHECK the wiring diagram to see if it shows a solid neutral assembly or service/equipment ground kit part number. If NOT, then it doesn't allow or have a solid neutral or ground kit that can be installed.
3) For Heavy Duty Safety Switches, see FA91974.  
4) For Double Throw Safety Switches, see FA87564
