The states parties to the Convention must report regularly to the responsible monitoring body, the Committee against Torture, on the measures that have been taken in line with their commitments under the Convention.
The first implementation report is due one year after the Convention comes into force in the state party concerned; subsequent reporting is due every four years. The Committee has delivered concluding remarks and recommendations since 1994.
In May 2014 Switzerland drew up its seventh implementation report as part of the UN's simplified reporting procedure i.e. on the basis of a list of questions issued by the Committee. The Committee reviewed the report during its 55th session on 3-4 August 2015 and delivered its concluding remarks and recommendations to Switzerland on 13 August that year.
The Federal Office of Justice (FOJ) is responsible for Switzerland's country reports on the implementation of its obligations under the UN Convention against Torture.
