In the tables, the waste groups are listed across the top row by number. The names of Canadian companies that notified Environment Canada of intended imports and exports (notifiers) are entered alphabetically in the left column. Although a Canadian company may have submitted many notifications for the period covered by this Resilog edition, their name appear only once in each table. Therefore, the notifiers may have one or more permit(s) per waste group.

For exports and imports, a two-letter code representing the name of the country of origin (imports) or destination (exports) is entered. Furthermore, a Canadian company could have provided multiple notifications where the countries of origin or destination differ. In this case, all countries of origin (imports) or destination (exports) are listed next to a letter symbol instead of the two-letter code.

For transits, the two-letter code entered in the table represents the name of the country of origin and destination. If the countries of origin and destination are different, then a letter symbol is used.

The legend of country codes is provided at the end of each table.
