Garda Vetting Certs expire after 3 years. 3 months before expiry, the Cert holder will receive an automatic email notification that their Cert is due for renewal and they must apply for a new Cert as soon as possible if they still carry out one of the activities listed above. The procedure for applying for renewal of a Cert is the same as applying for your first Cert.
