Welcome to the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission’s (NRC’s) Regulatory Information Conference (RIC) web page.  This page is intended to provide planning information and updates about the upcoming conference, as well as information on previous RIC events.

We are pleased to announce that the NRC's Annual Regulatory Information Conference (RIC) will be held at the Bethesda North Hotel and Conference Center, located just off of Rockville Pike (Route 355) and Marinelli Road, at 5701 Marinelli Road, North Bethesda, Maryland 20852.  This will be our 27th annual RIC – the largest technical meeting sponsored by the NRC – bringing together diverse groups of stakeholders to learn, share, and discuss information on significant and timely nuclear regulatory activities and emerging issues.

NEW!  The RIC 2015 room block at Bethesda North Hotel and Conference Center is sold out, however, rooms outside the block are available.  In addition, their sister hotel, Bethesda Pooks Hill Marriott, has rooms available. If the Bethesda North Marriott is your preferred hotel, contact the Marriott reservations desk directly at 301-822-9200 or 1-877-212-5752 closer to the date of the conference for cancellations and possible room availability at the group rate.  For a listing of nearby alternate hotels, please refer to the RIC website "Hotel Information" page for detailed information.

Pre-registration for the RIC will be available online beginning in early January 2015.  All interested in attending the conference are encouraged to take advantage of the opportunity to register online to avoid lines at the conference facility registration service desk.

Please check back with us frequently as the detailed conference information below will be posted as it becomes available.
