i'd go with the OSG - ensure the main breaker/RCD at the CU is rated at no more than 63A

16mm also covers you for 83 Amps when clipped Direct, so provided you stay less than this I don't think you'd have many problems

does the phrase 'reasonably practicable' come to mind. this is where you being the competent person should make an educated decision to err on the side of safety. safety notices regarding the size of the main breaker would seem appropriate

also make a code 4 in observations perhaps?

any other thoughts...?
