Garda Vetting

The Church of Ireland has been undertaking Garda Vetting of its bishops, clergy, staff and volunteers since 2006. The processing of vetting applications is conducted through the Church of Ireland Board of Education.

The National Vetting Bureau Act 2012-2016 makes it a statutory requirement for people working with children or vulnerable adults to be vetted. Following the commencement of this act, the processing of vetting applications is conducted via e-Vetting, the online Garda vetting application system.
