The National Vetting Bureau (Children and Vulnerable Persons) Acts 2012 2016 sets out a statutory basis for the vetting of persons carrying out relevant work with children or vulnerable persons. This means that it is against the laws for someone to commence work that involves contact with children or vulnerable persons without first being vetted. A thorough recruitment and selection procedure must be followed prior to appointing someone to work with children or vulnerable persons. Garda Vetting is one part of this recruitment process.
