Garda Vetting is a legal requirement for all people working with children and vulnerable adults, under the National Vetting Bureau (Children and Vulnerable Persons) Acts 2012-2016. The Garda Vetting process must be completed before an employee commences work in the service.

 

To use our eVetting service you must:

  • Be a member of Early Childhood Ireland
  • Be over 16 years old
  • If aged 16-18 years, have submitted signed “Parent / Guardian” consent form
  • Have or have access to a valid email address
  • Have access to the Internet
  • Have completed the “Proof of Identity” process

     

eVetting Steps

Step 1
a) The vetting subject manually completes a Vetting Invitation Form NVB1 and provides proof of identity (both photographic identification and proof of address) to the Owner/Manager of the service.
b) The Owner/Manager of the service must validate the vetting subjects’ identity, and complete the Identification Verification Form.
c) Both forms must be sent together to Early Childhood Ireland’s office: Garda Vetting, Early Childhood Ireland, Unit 12c Hainault House, Belgard Square South, Tallaght, Dublin, D24 RFV0, for processing. Please note that it is not necessary to send copies of the identity verification documentation unless it is the Owner/Manager applying for Vetting for themselves.

 

Here is a video demonstration on how to complete a Garda Vetting Application with Early Childhood Ireland, to further demonstrate the steps involved:

 

This PowerPoint presentation also further outlines the process with examples, to help you with your application.

 

Step 2
Early Childhood Ireland will review the information provided and if everything is satisfactory this information will be inputted into the National Garda Vetting Bureau Online Vetting system.

 

Step 3
A link will then be sent to the vetting applicant from the National Vetting Bureau asking them to complete an online application for Garda vetting. This link is valid for 30 days.

An email will also be sent to the Owner Manager of the early childhood service from Early Childhood Ireland, informing them that the applicant has been sent a link from the National Vetting Bureau.

 

Step 4
Once the applicant has clicked on the link sent to them from the NVB and inputted all the information required, they can then trace the status of their application through the National Vetting Bureau website: https://vetting.garda.ie/Track and entering the reference number assigned to them, This will start with ECI001-20—– and their date of birth.

 

Step 5
Early Childhood Ireland reviews the completed Online Vetting Application Form and passes it to the National Vetting Bureau.

 

Step 6
The National Vetting Bureau processes the application and forwards a vetting disclosure (completed Garda Vetting) to Early Childhood Ireland.

 

Step 7
Early Childhood Ireland reviews the vetting disclosure and, as soon as is practicable, provides a copy of the disclosure to the Owner/Manager of the service, via email.
