Every time I make a SAR request it always ends up delayed.
I have got one at the moment.
Lack of staff will be one week late, followed by person that signs SAR off was not at work all week.

Does anyone else make SAR requests, and do they arrive in the legal time limit?

I'm guessing this is a Subject Acces Request, where a person requests information from an organisation/company.

I've never yet put one in Hermit, but being a cynical sod I would suspect, depending on the organisation or request they will be as you alluded to, delaying.
Just thought, yes I did put one in, but they came back with only half the information because I hadn't worded the request precisely enough.

SAR - Search And Rescue - Hermit is obviously lost

or even :

Specific absorption rate (SAR) is a measure of the rate at which energy is absorbed by the human body when exposed to a radio frequency (RF) electromagnetic field. It can also refer to absorption of other forms of energy by tissue, including ultrasound.

I am not lost Trevor, but I have been to Peterborough a few times.
The old sports centre.
Last time I was there it had photos on the wall of a Liverpool team that trained there, would be 90's.
Impressed with the knowledge V, but Terry is correct.
Subject Access Request.

If it is to your Local Authority, they have to publish their policy on dealing with such requests and this would include expected timescales. It may be included (hidden) in their FOI policy.

I believe all government organisations have to comply in similar way and, yes, be very clear on what you want to know as any hint of ambiguity and it could be rejected.
