    There's no timescales how long a report can remain in audit. I've had a report remain in audit for 6 weeks, Once it's returned a decision can take anything up to about 12 weeks.
    I would appreciate it if members wouldn't tag me please. I have all notifcations turned off and wouldn't want a member thinking i'm being rude by not replying.
    If i see a question that i know the answer to i will try my best to help.

    @jan6122 It really doesn't. I see so many members so anxious over the wait. I hope it isn't too long for you now. Have you thought about joining us in the Coffee Lounge? It's where we play games, share interests and get to know each other. May help keep your mind off it all :)

    The length of time it's taking is no indication of anything at all, other than no decision has yet been made. It seems like your report was sent to Audit because it took almost 4 weeks for the report to be returned. That will of course delay the decision process. Timescales are up to 12 weeks after the report is return.

    Many members are awarded whether they have a decision in 2 weeks or 12 weeks.
    I would appreciate it if members wouldn't tag me please. I have all notifcations turned off and wouldn't want a member thinking i'm being rude by not replying.
