DNO request

My solar panels have been fitted and already generating quite a bit.
I have my MCS -  i have been informed that the email regarding the DNO has been sent. Does anyone know generally how long these are taking to get a response. Obviously i need before I can sort an outgoing tariff.

    It took my DNO (SPEN) 3 months to confirm that it was happy to sign off on the commissioning data (PV and battery). It then took my supplier a further month to get an export MPAN from the DNO. Other DNOs may be faster.
