Further to communications sent to clubs 1st September 2015, coaches and volunteers may not been vetted in line with introduction of new Garda Vetting Policy September 2015 and subsequent updates 2016. Please see updated policy documents below.
If you or your coaches or volunteers have been vetted prior to 1st September 2015, you must arrange for all your coaches & volunteers to complete an updated Garda Vetting Form 2016 & return to Mr John Martin Garda Vetting Officer. The Garda Vetting Officer now issues IJA Clearance Letters effective 1st September 2015. If you have not received a new IJA Clearance letter under the new Vetting Policy, you were most likely last vetted prior to 1st September 2015.
Older vetting applications have not and cannot be transferred into the new Vetting System, so vetting must occur again. As per the communication 1st September 2015, all coaches & volunteers will have to resubmit for Garda Vetting every 3 years. The IJA Clearance letter notes next vetting date. If you wish to check the IJA Current Garda Vetting Register, please contact the office 016251104
For your information, E Vetting is being introduced on a phased basis, but as yet, the IJA is not selected by An Garda Siochana to move to E Vetting, we expect this to change soon.
