Vetting is one part of a safe recruitment process and is a requirement for all those working on a continuous, regular and/or ongoing basis (once a week or more) with young people (U18).  Those who have occasional contact (‘now and then’ or ‘a once off event’ such as giving lifts, tournament/team assistants etc) come under the ‘occasional’ usage term and do not need to complete a vetting check however it is good practice to give such adults a code of conduct to sign. All those working with young people must also attend the relevant training workshops available.

Vetting must be carried out every 3 years while codes of conduct must be signed annually for all those working with juniors.

There are two types of vetting checks available:

  • National Vetting Bureau (NVB)
  • Access NI  (ANI)

The Confederation of Golf in Ireland is the registered body with the NVB and ANI and is responsible for processing applications to carry out vetting checks for golf.

When you are no longer working with juniors in your club, please inform us and we will delete your information from the vetting database.
