The quantity notified reflects the estimated maximum quantity of waste that is intended to be shipped. It therefore may not be the same as the actual quantity shipped. Exporters and importers routinely overestimate waste quantities on their notices, given that they must forecast the quantity and the physical and chemical nature of hazardous wastes or hazardous recyclable material that might be shipped over a period of one year. Actual quantities of hazardous wastes or hazardous recyclable materials in movement are tracked through movement documents and are entered in a database.
