UNCAC Review Status Tracker

The UNCAC review mechanism combines a self-assessment by the country under review with a governmental peer review. The involvement of civil society in the review process is unfortunately only optional.

The UNCAC review process comprises two five-year cycles:

  1. The first cycle (2010–2015) covers chapter III on criminalization and law enforcement and chapter IV on international cooperation;
  2. The second cycle (initially 2015–2020) covers chapter II on preventive measures and chapter V on asset recovery. Due to significant delays, the UNCAC Conference of the States Parties decided to extend the duration of the second cycle to June 2024.

The outputs of each country review are a self-assessment checklist by the country under review, a full country review report prepared by the peer reviewers and approved by the country under review, and an executive summary of this report. The publication of the self-assessments checklists and the full country review reports are optional. However, an increasing number of countries are agreeing to publishing these two key documents. The executive summaries are automatically published on the UNODC’s website.
