Vetting in the GAA

The GAA has a long established principle of vetting any person who, on our behalf, works with children or vulnerable adults in our Association. This principle is enshrined in rule through our Code of Behaviour (Underage) and has become part of the overall recruitment and selection process for those who wish to work with us in the GAA, in a voluntary or paid role.

Vetting in the GAA is for a period of three years.

Who needs to be vetted?

The National Vetting Bureau (Children & Vulnerable Persons) Acts 2012 – 2016 commence don 29th April 2016 and from that date the Act provides a legislative basis for the mandatory vetting of persons who wish to undertake certain activities relating to children or vulnerable persons.

In the GAA any person who carries out a role of responsibility such as coaching, managing or training underage teams or indeed adult teams that contain any player under 18 years of age must be vetted. It also applies to organizing underage activities or refereeing underage games.
