Message from Chairman Kristine Svinicki

Chairman Kristine L. SvinickiOn behalf of the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission and staff, welcome to our 32nd Annual Regulatory Information Conference. We look forward to joining with participants from industry, other government agencies, international bodies, non-governmental organizations and other stakeholders from around the world to discuss topics of mutual interest each year. This year, however, we are especially excited to continue the dialogue that we began last year on transformation at the NRC. As part of this dialogue, we hope to share examples of how the NRC's transformation effort has helped us become a more modern, risk-informed regulator and look forward to hearing about innovation in your organization.

The RIC is the NRC's largest annual meeting with thousands of participants from the United States and dozens of other countries. The technical sessions correspondingly address a wide array of issues relevant to a global audience. The NRC has chosen panels and speakers to encourage a robust dialogue both during the conference and afterward. Additionally, my Commission colleagues and I also look forward to sharing our views on nuclear regulation with you during plenary sessions, at technical sessions we will be moderating, and in discussions on the margins. As always, we encourage your feedback at the end of the conference, so the NRC can continue to improve the RIC each year.

Thank you for taking the time to attend, and I wish you a productive conference.

Purpose of the RIC

The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission’s Annual Regulatory Information Conference (RIC) is the largest public meeting the agency hosts, bringing together nearly 3,000 participants from more than 30 countries representing interested stakeholders from other government agencies, industry, international organizations, and the general public.  The RIC is sponsored by the Office of Nuclear Reactor Regulation and the Office of Nuclear Regulatory Research, and offers an open environment in which diverse groups of stakeholders may learn, share, and discuss information on significant and timely nuclear regulatory activities and emergent issues.  The RIC offers an illustrious technical program featuring experts from across the agency as well as speakers from industry, academia, and our international counterparts.  Throughout the 2 ½ day conference, attendees may participate in over 35 dynamic sessions featuring panelists addressing a broad range of topics of interest in the nuclear community.  To compliment the technical program, interactive digital exhibits and live demonstrations will be on display and attendees may engage in one-on-one dialogue with exhibitors on topics of their choosing.  Attendees also have an opportunity to participate in tours of the NRC Operations Center to round out their overall conference experience.  Join us as we showcase the wave of innovation and transformation happening at the NRC!
