Safeguarding: IABA Garda Vetting Tutorial

IABA has released a tutorial to assist in the Garda Vetting process.

Garda Vetting is required if your work in the boxing community involves access to children or vulnerable adults. Over three quarters of all boxers in clubs throughout the association are under the age of 18.

In order to avail of the Garda eVetting service, applicants must:

  • Be over 16 years old
  • If aged 16-18 years, have submitted signed “Parent / Guardian” consent form
  • Have or have access to a valid email address
  • Have access to the Internet
  • Have completed the “Proof of Identity” process

For more information, and assistance in the process, please contact the IABA’s National Safeguarding Manager, Paul Hayes, on

For clubs based in Northern Ireland, information on Access NI checks is available here
