Student (Garda) Vetting

Under National Vetting Bureau (Children and Vulnerable Persons) Act 2012 to 2016, we are prohibited in allowing anyone to undertake relevant work or activities on behalf of the organisation unless we have received a vetting disclosure from the National Vetting Bureau in respect of that person.
