The Code sets out: the rules and conditions under which the Government may expropriate a person's ownership or other rights in or to immovable property for public purposes (Chapter A, art. 1-6); the procedures governing the conduct of the act of expropriation(Chapter B, art. 7-10); the conditions for cancellation or revocation of compulsory acquisition (Chapter C, art. 11-12); the rules and procedures that shall be used in establishing the amount and payment of compensation for such an expropriation (Chapter D, art. 13-25); the procedures of recognition of beneficiaries for compensation (Chapter E, art. 26-27); and other provisions governing ancillary matters related to the act of expropriation (penal, transitional and final provisions) (Chapter F, art. 28-29).
