Thank you Ben & Tom
Current building code in Mexico
was published in 2004 with some important changes respect to former editions.
The main part is the Building Code for Federal District (Reglamento de
Construcciones para el Distrito Federal) with general regulations and it
contains a series of additional publications called Complementary Technical
Regulations for Design and construction, which include the design criterion and
specifications for concrete, steel, masonry, foundations, wood, seismic design,
wind design, loads for design and architectural projects. Those regulations and
the code were specified for desing of structures in the Federal District,
anyway, with the exception of seismic and wind design are commonly used
everywhere in Mexico.

I did a search of the archives and couldn't find an answer. Sorry if this topic has been dealt with before.
What is the building code of Mexico? Have they adopted an ICC code? Do they have a national code, or do states or cities have the option to adopt different codes?
