30th April 2018 is the deadline for applications under the National Vetting Bureau (Children and Vulnerable Persons) Act 2012 to 2016 (NVB Act) for Retrospective Vetting. Please note that as we have now reached the deadline, that it will be an offence for affiliates of Horse Sport Ireland to permit any person to whom Section 21 applies to conduct relevant work or activities after that date, if an application for vetting has not been submitted to this office in respect of them.
In addition, as and from the commencement of the NVB Act on 29th April 2016, it is an offence to allow a person to commence working/volunteering with children or vulnerable adults in a new role without first ensuring they have completed the vetting process. Vetting should be conducted as part of the recruitment process for all relevant roles.
