The following tables provide an overview of the status of the UNCAC review in all States Parties to the Convention for both the 2nd and ongoing review cycle, and further below for the 1st review cycle, grouped by region and year of review. 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 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.
