Notes:

 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) In 1997 and 1998, coca leaves were also seized. Cocaine liquid was also seized in 1999. Since 2007 quatity of coca leaves seized is included in the total quatity of cocaine seized (17.9 kg in 2007 and 0.28 kg in 2008). 

 (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. 0,947 kg of coca leaves were also seized in 2006 and 0.336 kg in 2007.  

 (6) 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.   

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

 (8) 0.112 kg of coca leaves were also seized in 2007.   

 (9) Before 2006 data have been reported on a calendar year basis. Since 2006 seizures data will be published on a financial year basis (Data reported for 2006 is for 2006/07, data reported in 2007 is for 2007/08 and so on). There are no customs data for Scotland and Northern Ireland in 2006/07. In 2007 data are for England, Wales and Northern Ireland only (England and Wales reported both police and customs seizures and Northern Ireland only police seizures); no data for Scotland is available.
