How can you be vetted?
Vetting for a member of the GAA involves 3 easy to follow steps as follows:
Step 1 Complete the GAA E-Vetting Identification Validation Form and return to the child officer for completion along with copy of your passport plus a utility bill showing your current address.
The ID verification along with the E-Vetting Identification Validation Form is retained by the Club Children's Officer for the duration of the e-vetting process or it may be attached by you at Step 2 to the Online E-Vetting application Form.
Step 2 Click on the link to complete the GAA EVetting Application Form
Step 3 The NVB will issue you with the NVB Vetting Application form. This will be issued to the email address you provided in the form.
Completing this form is a confidential matter between you and the NVB. All sections of the form including current and previous addresses, email address and contact telephone numbers, information on convictions and prosecutions (if any), plus other information will be required when completing the form.
Once all sections of the form have been answered this then completes your application process for E Vetting in the GAA and within a short period of time you shall be contacted by the GAA to informing you as to the outcome of the vetting application.
You and your Club Secretary will be notified when the vetting process has been completed.
Who needs to be vetted?
Any person who carries out a role of responsibility such as coaching, managing or training underage teams or indeed adult teams that contain any player under 18 yrs. of age must be vetted. It also applies to organising underage activities or refereeing underage games.
Is it an offence if you are not vetted?
It is a criminal offence and also a breach of GAA rule if you are working with children or vulnerable adults on behalf of the Association and have not been vetted.
