Businesses have requested that the fee for Civil Protection be reduced because they say it is high, since a small hotel of ten room paid 5000 pesos, plus the payment for the specialists (who conduct the inspections). They've asked that Civil Protection supply its own specialist for the electrical and propane inspection. Civil Protection also requires that they take two courses, one in First aid and one for emergencies (and use of fire extinguishers). Businesses must also renew their information with the SIEM, Mexican Business Information System annually.
