200tdi serial plate

Anyone know what this plate means? I'm guessing remanufacture? Do places in England replace the serial number when they reman the engine?

I only know one reason why a business involved in the motor vehicle trade would change the serial number on a component like that. There is no legitimate benefit to doing so- it would only serve to hinder repair in the event one needed the original factory serial number in order to ensure correct sourcing of parts or repair procedure.

Most remans that I have seen use a plate attached elsewhere on the component.
