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

 Numbers are rounded to the nearest kg except for quantities less than 1 kg where more precise information is provided when available. 

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

 (2) All seizures are included (Police, Coast Guard and Customs). 

 (3) There were also 5 doses of liquid heroin seized in 2001.  

 (4) Data refer to seizures made by the Customs and the National Service for Combating Organized Crime (NACOC) from the Ministry of Interior. 5658 doses of heroin were also seized in 2005 and 112 in 2006. 

 (5) Both 2004 and 2005 data are based on seizures made only by some police forces: they are not comparable between them, nor with previous years. 

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