Structure & Policy

Garda Vetting

The National Vetting Bureau (Children & Vulnerable Persons) Acts 2012 - 2016 (NVBA) commenced on 29th April 2016 and the Act provides a legislative basis for the mandatory vetting of persons who wish to undertake certain activities relating to children or vulnerable persons.

From July 2016 - Vetting is conducted by means of eVetting applications only.

All applications to the NVB are processed by the GI Liaison Person through the NVB on-line application system on receipt of eVetting Invitation & Identification Validation form from an individual seeking to be vetted. The requirements of the process are mandatory by legislation.
