CIC consider date when they received PCC from applicant even if application processing goes beyond 12 months they will consider pcc valid , it's only the medical they might ask to perform again if has passed beyond 12 months mark...Since the valid duration for PCC is 12 months/one-year, I would expect that CIC will finish at least the background check within 12 months after the submission of App if the PCC was submitted in the original App. Am I correct? Then I can definitely expect my DM by the end of this month or late beg of next month. Or is it possible that they'll further request new PCC for processing background check??
