Garda Vetting - Overview

The National Vetting Bureau (Children and Vulnerable Persons) Acts 2012 to 2016 commenced on April 29th 2016.

The National Vetting Bureau (Children and Vulnerable Persons) Act 2012 makes vetting mandatory for anyone volunteering or seeking employment relating to children or vulnerable persons. Anybody who is involved in ‘any work or activity which is carried out by a person, a necessary and regular part of which consists mainly of the person having access to, or contact with children’ must be vetted.

It will be an offence for an organisation or an employer to employ someone to work with children or vulnerable persons without going through the vetting procedures set out in the Act. Liability rests with the organisation or employer, not the employee.

The new vetting forms are now available online along with some updated Frequently Asked Questions and details on Identification Validation.    See here for all details.
