Assuming as a premise that in the design of the Chilean criminal admonition procedure, similar procedures regulated in Germany (the Strafbefehlsverfahren) and Italy (the procedimento per decreto penale) were considered, and accepting as a hypothesis that it is possible to compare these foreign procedures with that one and that this is useful to assess the latter, in this paper a description of those foreign procedures is offered and some of the most important criticisms raised against them by the doctrine of those countries are summarized. After that, a comparison is made between said foreign procedures and the Chilean criminal admonition procedure, in order to establish some bases for the evaluation of the latter. Such a comparison allows verifying the effective existence of similarities between the compared procedures and the consequent correction of considering them as species of the same genus. However, the comparison also shows that several differences are perceptible, some of which, for the reasons indicated in the work, justify a positive assessment of some aspects of the Chilean procedure, while others, for the reasons also indicated in the article, give rise to formulate a negative assessment of other aspects of the same procedure.
