Who needs a blue card or exemption card?
People who work with children and young people must hold a blue card or an exemption card if their work falls into one of the regulated categories of business or employment.
If you are an employer, volunteer coordinator or education provider and engage people as paid employees, volunteers or trainee students to work with children and young people, there are specific categories, exemptions and obligations that apply to each group.
Please note that you cannot make it a compulsory requirement for employees, volunteers or trainee students to hold a blue card or an exemption card unless they are providing child-related services that are regulated by the Working with Children (Risk Management and Screening) Act 2000.
