General Conference Information

Transition from a Hybrid to Virtual Event

The U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission's (NRC’s) 34th Regulatory Information Conference (RIC), being held March 8–10, 2022, will now be an all “virtual” event. Our decision to transition from a hybrid event to a virtual one is to protect the health of attendees during the global health pandemic.

The RIC is open to all. Although there are no fees for the conference, all attendees must be registered. Online registration for the RIC begins mid-January. To join the 2022 RIC, attendees will use the online conference platform. Access information will be provided in your registration confirmation. Attendees with hotel reservations at the Bethesda North Marriott, Bethesda Marriott, or other area hotels should contact them directly to cancel reservations as appropriate. Please visit the RIC Web site for conference and program information, as it will be updated when new information becomes available. For questions or additional information, NRC employees may contact, and external stakeholders are welcome to contact
