Administrative Filter in respect of Garda Vetting Unit Disclosures

The Garda Central Vetting Unit has now surpassed 300,000 applications processed for the year 2014.  The turnaround time for applications is running at a maximum of 4 weeks from receipt of the application in the Garda Central Vetting Unit and this turnaround time may be reduced depending on the results of our analysis.  Work is continuing at present to provide an online EVetting system in 2015 which will help reduce turnaround times whilst also allowing an applicant to track the progress of their application at all stages of the process.

On March 31st 2014, the Minister for Justice and Equality implemented an administrative filter to be applied to all Garda Vetting applications.  The administrative filter is a new procedure being applied by the Garda Central Vetting Unit to allow certain minor convictions over 7 years old to be removed from disclosures. 

Number of Garda Vetting applications processed:

Week ending 12th December 2014: 6,491
Total Year to Date: 304,972   

The administrative filter is available for your information here 
The process for obtaining Garda Vetting is as set out in thislink
