60A, single phase (240V) here as standard.

3p here is generally 63A per phase, as standard.

There is pretty much nothing lower than 60A per phase here.

The guy from the electricity board comes out, checks that your consumer
unit is rated at the current, and whaps in a new fuse, given most wiring
is rated to about 100A continuous anyway.
