All volunteers within our boxing clubs who have regular unsupervised access to children and young people or vulnerable adults are required to be vetted either through AccessNI or the Garda Siochana.

Please note no volunteer should be left unsupervised with frequent access until this check is back. Your club has the responsibility as the employer to ensure that you do not allow any volunteer to have unsupervised access to children and young people or vulnerable adults within your club until their checks have been received, this includes those coaches/volunteers needing rechecked and are out of date. Please note also that no coach will be permitted to carry out corner duties until such times as the Access NI / Gardai Vetting process has been completed in its entirety.


The IABA – Ulster Branch is the approved Registered Body for conducting Access NI checks within Northern Ireland for IABA affiliated clubs.

Disclosures / Traces

As the AccessNI check conducted is an Enhanced check, then a disclosure or trace may recorded on your certificate, for whatever reason. This can include things like motor related offences that happened 20 years ago.

The IABA Ulster Branch will request to see your disclosure certificate, which needs to be produced by the applicant within 2 weeks of request to the IABA Ulster Branch. We are requesting this as AccessNI no longer provide a copies of disclosures to us. Regardless of the content of the disclosure we are required to see this to complete your vetting process.

Failure to forward a copy of your certificate or present it to a relevant staff member could mean that you are not allowed to take up a volunteer position or removed from a position within your club.

Your certificate will be treated as strictly confidential and only those involved in the decision-making process will be able to view your certificate.

You will then be informed once a decision has been reached and any copies of your certificate record will be shredded or deleted if emailed.
