In the first review cycle in 2012, Switzerland was reviewed by Finland and Algeria for compliance with Chapter III (criminalisation and law enforcement) and Chapter IV (international cooperation). Switzerland's self-assessment checklist, country report and executive summary can be found under its UNCAC country profile.

As part of the second review cycle, starting June 2020 Switzerland's correct and thorough implementation of Chapter II (preventive measures) and Chapter V (asset recovery) is also being evaluated. This process is being coordinated by the FDFA's Prosperity and Sustainability Division. The focal point for the Swiss side is the secretary of the Interdepartmental Working Group on Combating Corruption, Urs A. Tschanz (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Switzerland's self-assessment checklist was submitted within the September 2020 deadline and subsequently reviewed by the two evaluators Bangladesh and Sweden. Owing to COVID-19 pandemic-related delays in the whole second review cycle, following a dialogue phase, the country visit in Bern took place between 18 and 20 October 2022. The next step is the review report with a number of concrete recommendations for action for Switzerland.
Based on its commitment to transparency, Switzerland will voluntarily publish all the relevant documents pertaining to its second country review (the completed self-assessment and detailed examination report).
