These codes are classified in three priority levels according to Mexico's economic, technological, political and social situation. At the first level we find the protection of the community, process safety and control of environmental pollution. At the second level, safety and health in the workplace, transportation and distribution. At the third level, product safety.

In synthesis, the scope we give each of these codes is the following:

Community protection: Awareness programs for the surrounding communities and development of response programs in case of in-plant emergencies
