Vetting Policy

There are two types of vetting checks available to Cycling Ireland - Garda Vetting and Access NI; both processes are applicable to Cycling Ireland members and personnel engaged in Cycling Ireland activities.   

Cycling Ireland is registered with the Garda Vetting Central Unit, Co. Tipperary and has one appointed Authorised Liaison, Rachel Ormrod.  The Garda Vetting Central Unit has been changed to the National Vetting Bureau (NVB), with updated legislation enacted in December 2012.

Cycling Ulster, is registered with Access NI and has one designated signatory, Lisa Miller.  

The decision to engage in vetting for existing members and as part of the recruitment and selection process is in line with the best safeguarding advice available to protect the welfare of children and vulnerable adults within our organisation. 

In Northern Ireland there is a legal requirement to not recruit/allow a barred individual to take up a regulated activity position. The only way to ensure a club do not allow a barred person volunteer/worker to take up a regulated activity position is to do an AccessNI check.  The Disqualification and Barring Scheme (DBS) determines whether individuals should be barred from working with children and/or vulnerable adults.  

In the Republic of Ireland new legislation for Garda Vetting, 
through the implementation of the New National Vetting Bureau (Children and Vulnerable Persons) Act 2012 to 2016 and has now fully commenced. The National Vetting Bureau Act provides a legislative basis for the mandatory vetting of individuals who wish to undertake certain work or activities, either in a paid or voluntary capacity, relating to children or vulnerable persons.  In essence any person who engages with children or vulnerable adults on a regular, ongoing basis must have received confirmation from Cycling Ireland that they are ‘deemed acceptable' to fill the position from a National Vetting  perspective.  Under the National Vetting Bureau Act it is an offence to engage with children or vulnerable adults on a regular, ongoing basis in the absence of clearance from Cycling Ireland.  Click here to view full Cycling Ireland Vetting Policy
