Time frame to add conviction

Good Evening all, 

How long does the court have to add the details of a conviction to a record? Would it be an issue if the item did not appear for 18 months and would this be worth looking into? 

Conviction was a criminal one heard in criminal court

The punishment was community resolution (hours)


Its normally added

Its normally added immediately.

Thanks for your reply.  Sorry

Thanks for your reply. 

Sorry my error it has been 15 months. It was only added recently which I noticed with a new background check which I get regurly due to work etc. 

Anything I can do, is it worth complaining about?

Complain about

what? How does it affect you, being added late? More concern to an employer I would think?

Because it didn't show on

Because it didn't show on checks before, the way it was dealt with in court etc, This lead me to believe it was a civil matter. 

Regardless of the above it was added 15 months later and my question is, do I have grounds for complaint.

You have no complaint. Your misunderstanding is not a cause for complaint to anyone else.
