Advanced Language Solutions (ALS) has completed its review and has provided assurances to the Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) that a full audit trail is now held in respect of all 1,100 interpreters on its list and that all vetting information has been fully verified. The vetting status of 208 interpreters used on CPS work between February and August 2012 has been verified by ALS as part of the review. The vetting status of a further 28 interpreters who were used on CPS work between February and August 2012 was unable to be verified as part of the review, and these interpreters were subsequently removed from the ALS supplier list.
