FOI: 1338

Confirm the policy or statutory provision which states that applicants must wait to receive a completed DBS check (which we take to be synonymous with an ‘Enhanced Criminal Record Check’) before they can access the DBS dispute process and the Independent Monitor.

If this requirement is set out in a policy please confirm which body owns that policy.
