Every early learning and care and school age childcare setting in Ireland must be registered with the National Vetting Bureau, and needs their own unique GNVB Affiliate Registration Number.
You will need this GNVB number to access our online vetting, even if you have used us in the past for vetting. You need to register your ELC or SAC setting details with the National Vetting Bureau by applying for a GNVB number.
