Garda Vetting update 1 June 2021

May 31, 2021

We are delighted that over 385 of our members have used the new online Garda Vetting system since last week. You can now enter your employee’s Garda Vetting applications at your own convenience on our Early Childhood Ireland website.

After the applicant has filled out the NVB1 Vetting Invitation, and provided you with copies of their photo identification and proof of address, you can then go to the Garda Vetting page of our website and login.

This will open up a new window, which mirrors the NVB1 form. You will notice that your membership number is already completed in that field. The system will not allow you to change this number once you have logged in. You then complete the online Garda Vetting application form using the applicant’s information from the NVB1 form.

Some helpful tips with inputting this information:

  • Please do not insert any commas, symbols, hyphens, apostrophes, full stops, additional spaces, when entering the information into the form, especially around the email address, as the system is very sensitive, and this may result in delays.


  • If there is no middle name please leave the space blank. Do not write n/a
  • Please enter only the current address of the applicant: i.e.


  • If the applicant currently lives overseas you can enter their address here too. Make sure the regional postcode is in the postcode box.
  • The date of consent should be the date the applicant has signed on the NVB1 form (not todays date)
  • If you think you have made a mistake when inputting the form, please do not re-enter the information as this will cause duplication in the system. You can let us know by emailing us at and we will amend the application straight away.

Once you have submitted the information the applicant will receive a link to complete their address history in the next few hours, or if you enter it at night the following morning, so please encourage them to check their email for this link. This link is valid for 30 days.

Please keep the NVB1 form and the applicants copies of their Identification in their employee personnel file.
