The IDS is a data collection mandated by the drug conventions and it gathers data on individual drug seizure cases taking place within the national territory of Member States. It is reported to UNODC throughout the year, preferably quarterly. For this questionnaire, an Individual Drug Seizure is defined as a singular interception or apprehension of drugs and/or New Psychoactive Substances, by a Law Enforcement Agency, taking into account the specific place and point in time of the event. An individual drug seizure case can cover one or more drugs seized at one specific place and point in time.
IDS data submitted by Member States form a critical component for producing drug seizure statistics used for informing the global community on the drug trafficking problem through the global annual publication-the World Drug Report.
