AccessNI will no longer process application which have been sitting in the system for more than 90 days. All such application will be deleted on a phased basis. The reason that some applications are still sitting in the system is because the lead officer, Marian Lamb, has not received a copy of the ID Validation Form. Once you apply for an AccessNI Check you must complete the application process by getting a senior club official to validate your ID and return the form to Marian. That official must also keep a copy of your ID for 90 days. Anyone who is currently on the system will be contacted to make them aware of the new rules.
