Garda Vetting is used as part of the recruitment process for staff or volunteers working in sporting organisations. It may identify if a candidate has any convictions or prosecutions which indicate that they are unsuitable to work with children or vulnerable adults.
In January 2013 the Government passed the “National Vetting Bureau (Children and Vulnerable Persons) Bill 2012”. When this legislation is commenced, it will make it an offence under the act to knowingly employ / deploy someone to work with children or vulnerable adults.
Garda Vetting (vetting) is available through the ISA to assist in the recruitment of suitable candidates to positions within the ISA and our affiliated Clubs, Class Associations and Training Centres.
Garda Vetting should form one part of the checks made on candidates prior to appointment and will support rather than replace those checks already recommended as forming part of good recruitment practice.
