Final Reminder for GNVB Number

If you don’t have a unique GNVB number for each one of your Early Years and School Age settings please apply now. From January 2020 each Early Learning and School Age Childcare setting must have its own unique GNVB number to be compliant with the National Vetting Bureau.

  • In January 2020 the Garda National Vetting Bureau established a compliance unit and made it compulsory for every early learning and care and school age childcare setting in Ireland to be registered (or reregistered) with the National Vetting Bureau, with a 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.

Each set must have its own unique GNVB Affiliate Registration Number.

If you have received your GNVB letter – please email it (both sides) to cdaly@earlychildhoodireland.ie so we can send your setting details to be registered (or reregistered) on the National Vetting Portal.

  • If you have not yet applied for a GNVB Affiliate Registration Number, the process is outlined below. Please ensure you use your setting address or the letter will need to be sent back to the Garda National Vetting Bureau to be reissued with the correct address.How do I apply for a GNVB number?

    Email gnvb.registration@garda.ie requesting a GNVB Affiliate Registration Number giving the following information:
  • Name and address of your early learning or school age setting – this must be the setting address affiliated with the ECI membership number.
  • Early Childhood Ireland membership number and main contact person
  1. The National Vetting Bureau will send you an application form to fill in and post back to them.3. They will then send you a two-sided GNVB registration letter.4.  You then email the GNVB letter (both sides) to cdaly@earlychildhoodireland.ie

    We then send your details to be registered on the National Vetting Portal.
