 A fuller historical series, back to 1985 for reporting countries, is available in the Supplementary tables section of this statistical bulletin.       

 (1) Accurate data are not available before 2002 due to double counting of seizures by police and customs reports.           

 (2) In 1995: the number of seizures based on offences; since 1996: the numbers of seizures based on police register.       

 (3) 1998 data include 1 seizure of coca leaves; 1999 data include 1 seizure of liquid cocaine.       

 (4) Cocaine and crack are reported together (however, there are usually very few, if any, seizures of crack).       

 (5) Data refer to seizures made by the Customs and the National Service for Combating Organized Crime (NACOC) from the Ministry of Interior.        

 (6) Up until 2003 the number of large seizures only is reported; from 2004 all seizures are reported.
