    Atlantic waiting time

    Once you've submitted a disclosure request in Atlantic and it's been released to the DBS, how long does it usually take to come back if there are no problems?

    Can anyone speak from experience?

    We have just submitted one and have a camp on the weekend of 11th/12th April, starting to get nervous.

    Thanks.

    For my DBS renewal, it took 8 days from point of submitting the final stage of the application form.
    Code:
    while onCamp == True: 
        if fireHeat < 0.4 then:
             pokeFire()

    2 business days each to "result received" for the two I processed in the last month or so, plus a further 2 to actually receive the printed certificate. But Thames Valley are known for being very quick with their bit; I think the local "not on PNC information" enquiry is what tends to hold them up.

    My DBS renewal was submitted on Sunday and the certificate landed on my doormat on the following Thursday.

    Last one I did was dispatched to DBS on a Monday and arrived on the applicant's doormat on the Thursday.

    Received from our Appts Sec on 24/03 @ 21:45 - "Some I put through on Sunday (22/03) are now approved"

    She says that once she's got them onto the system they come back really quickly - the issue is the system not crashing WHILE she's doing to processing!
