eVetting is now available


eVetting is now available!

Athletics Ireland have begun eVetting with the National Vetting Bureau of an Garda Síochána from Monday the 4th of July. eVetting will make processing a vetting application faster and reduce the administration of the system. As of Monday the 4th of July the National Vetting Bureau will not accept any more paper vetting applications from AAI as we transfer to the eVetting system. All paper applications received prior to the 4th will be processed and completed as normal. Please do not sent any more paper vetting applications to Athletics Ireland as they will be returned to applicants.

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

This is a new way for us to manage our vetting processes. There have been a number of changes in vetting as a consequence of the Vetting Act commencing in April. Thank you to 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. We are confident that the transfer to eVetting will be smooth and easy for members. If any applicant or club has any queries about vetting please contact Kieron Stout on (01) 886 9933 or
