rate_K is initially a number (rate_K = -1), but rate_G is a string. If
you want to compare numeric values, make sure that they are both
numbers. (In Python 3 it will complain if you say x < y when one of
them is a string and the other is a number; in Python 2 it will return
a consistent but arbitrary result.)

The re.match(code_K, code_G) checks whether code_G start with code_K.
It is better to use code_G.startswith(code_K) instead.

Also, you have:

     for row_G in list_G:
         ...
         list_G.remove(row_G)

Don't add or remove items in a list over which you are iterating.
