* From May 2012, blood lead was notifiable by a blood lead level of or above 10µg/dL (previously defined by a blood lead level of or above 15µg/dL). From February 2016, blood lead was notifiable by a blood lead level of or above 5 µg/dL.

Disease-specific data on notifiable conditions are reported by year and month of onset of illness except for tuberculosis, which is reported by year and month of diagnosis.

No cases of the following conditions have been notified since 1991: plague, diphtheria, granuloma inguinale, lyssavirus, poliomyelitis, rabies, smallpox, typhus, viral haemorrhagic fever and yellow fever.​​​​
