“Following a few calls from governing bodies & others this week I have spoken to AccessNI staff about their service standards which was 4 weeks turn around for 90% of enhanced checks. Unfortunately they are not meeting their targets and inform me that have written to all registered bodies. The following text is on their web site and they have staff working at weekends to resolve the issue. These checks as we remind people are only one aspect of safe recruitment but sports must consider this delay when planning events. I will raise delay with the NIO through the NSPCC as this increase in volume could have been predicted given the experiences of the CRB in the past”.
