1: Nuclear Accidents are restricted to INES Levels 1 to 5
2: Examples of events that may necessitate or require the usage of Emergency Blowout Procedures are B/DO-Class and B/DZ-Class Scenarios, see Emergency Containment and Eradication Protocol Directive (ECE-PoD) Alpha-5 for more information
3: Radioactive Contamination Events are limited to INES Level 6 and 7, with incidents designated as Level 5 as an exception if they deemed necessary on a case-by-case basis
4: Due to misunderstandings, this manual is required to clarify that AR-Class Event is a scenario in which an entity with the sufficient technological capacity to use and/or manufacture the required means of task accomplishment uses nuclear weapons to resolve a conflict of any scale4.1n where by contrast an AW-Class Event involves nuclear proliferation or global thermonuclear war
4.1n: For historical examples refer to the American nuclear bombing of Japanese cities Hiroshima and Nagasaki during World War 2, which are designated as AR-Class Incidents #1 and #2 and respectively
5: For examples of possible resulting dystopias, refer to "CATG" hypothetical scenario abstract file
6: Scenario most likely caused by an evolutionary process
7: This classification was assigned to assist in the classification of general public health issues, such as obesity epidemics
8: Event may be caused by an I/TC-Class Scenario
9: Currently, the most likely scenarios involve industrial/manufacturing technology setbacks. Alternatively, a potential future scenario may involve the internet. For more information, please refer to the "Alexandria Library" Scenario
10: See “LinkOne chance
11: See Protocol Roanoke
