GNVB Affiliate Registration Number

We have noticed that several of our members have received a GNVB number and have input it on the Garda Vetting Identification form.

If you have received your GNVB Affiliate Registration Number issued by the Garda National Vetting Bureau (GNVB), please email cdaly@earlychildhoodireland.ie with a copy of both sides of the letter, so that we can have you registered on the National Vetting Bureau Portal.

If you haven’t applied for the GNVB Affiliate Registration Number we would urge you to do so as soon as possible, as it will be compulsory in the near future in order for you to access Garda vetting, and the process can take up to three weeks. This number is required to ensure good governance and compliance with the National Vetting Bureau (Children & Vulnerable Persons) Acts 2012-2016, that only persons conducting relevant work or activities with children or vulnerable adults are legally vetted under the Act. Only Early Learning and Care settings, School Age Providers and Organisations are required to obtain the GNVB number.

If you have urgent Garda Vetting applications, please send those to us first before starting the GNVB Affiliate Registration Number application process.

How do I apply for a GNVB Affiliate Registration Number?

1.Please email the Garda Vetting Bureau at vetting@garda.ie requesting a GNVB  Affiliate Registration Number and giving the following information:

  • Early Childhood Ireland membership number
  • Name and address of your Early Learning and Childcare or School Age Childcare setting
  • Main contact person
  • The nature of your business e.g. Early Learning and Childcare or School Age Setting

*Multiple settings – This process must be completed for each individual ECI membership number, as each setting is required to have its own GNVB Affiliate Registration Number.

2.The Garda Vetting Bureau will then post you an application form which you fill in and return to them. Once you have sent them the completed form, they will then issue you with your GNVB Affiliate Registration Number.

3.When you receive your GNVB Affiliate Registration Number, please email a copy of the GNVB letter (both sides), confirming your GNVB number, to cdaly@earlychildhoodireland.ie.
