Athletics Ireland Garda Vetting update

Athletics Ireland Vetting Policy
Athletics Ireland Child Welfare Facebook page

Athletics Ireland is commencing eVetting with the National Vetting Bureau of an Garda Síochána, on Monday July 4th.

eVetting will make processing a vetting application faster, and reduce the administration of the system. The National Vetting Bureau will not accept any more paper vetting applications from Athletics Ireland as it transfers to the eVetting system. All paper applications received to date will be processed and completed, as normal. Please do not sent any more paper vetting applications to Athletics Ireland.

Athletics Ireland has developed a one page eVetting Invitation & ID Validation form that can be downloaded here, or on the link below. This form contains the legal declarations required to send an applicant an eVetting invitation by email. The applicants signature is required to authorise the eVetting process. This is the only form that will be required to be posted to Athletics Ireland to trigger an eVetting invitation.

This is a new way for Athletics Ireland to manage its vetting processes. There have been a number of changes in vetting as a consequence of the Vetting Act, which commenced in April. Athletics Ireland thanks all the Club Children's Officers who coordinated and implemented the required policy changes.

Vetting is now a legal requirement and an important part of our safe recruitment processes along with acceptable references and safeguarding training. Athletics Ireland is confident that the transfer to the eVetting system will be smooth and easier for members to engage with. If any club has any queries about vetting please contact Kieron Stout on 086 2450134, or This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
