Disclosures

‘Disclosure’ is the term used by the Garda National Vetting Bureau, to describe a completed Garda Vetting.  The Garda Vetting disclosure that is sent regarding an applicant is in both Irish and English.

When an employer/organisation receives a disclosure for an applicant, they need to download it and save it in a secure file on a computer (password protected file at the very least) and print it out to file in the employee record in a secure location, along with the identification documents.

The disclosure is a legal document that should not be tampered with and is non-transferable. If an applicant changes their employment the new employer will have to apply for their Garda Vetting.

Re-vetting requirements – Renewing your Garda Vetting every three years.

The Early Years Quality and Regulatory Framework and best practice recommends that you have your employees re-vetted every three years. The re-vetting process is the same as the Garda Vetting process and is a free service for all Early Childhood Ireland members.

 

If you have any queries about Garda Vetting, please see our website www.earlychildhoodireland.ie/membership/garda-vetting, or you can call our Garda Vetting team directly on 01 405 7102
