Tables of reported statistics

The tables in the present section contain the statistical information on psychotropic substances in Schedules I-IV of the Convention on Psychotropic Substances of 1971 furnished to the International Narcotics Control Board (INCB) by Governments in accordance with article 16 of the Convention. As few Governments have reported the movement of substances listed in Schedule I, a brief statistical table, including statistics on total manufacture of those substances for the three-year period 2016-2018 and on stocks of and international trade in those substances for 2018, is provided. With regard to the statistical tables for substances in Schedules III and IV, it should be noted that, although the majority of countries and territories reported on substances in all schedules, some Governments have not yet extended the control measures of the 1971 Convention to all of the substances listed in Schedules III and IV. Therefore, for certain substances, the statistical data available to INCB may present only a partial picture of the global manufacture of and trade in those substances.
