Regulatory Information Conference 2019

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.

NEW! We are pleased to announce that the NRC's Annual Regulatory Information Conference (RIC) is scheduled to be held on March 12-14, 2019, at the Bethesda North Marriott 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 NRC's 31st annual RIC – the largest technical meeting sponsored by the NRC – bringing together diverse groups of stakeholders to learn, share, and discuss significant and relevant regulatory activities that are important to the nuclear community.

NEW! The room block for RIC 2019 is now closed!  However, there are currently rooms available at the Bethesda North Marriott Hotel and Conference Center outside of the group room block.  You may reserve a room at the selling rate by going directly to Bethesda North Marriott Hotel and Conference Center's website and selecting the dates you wish to reserve or you may call Marriott reservations directly at 1-800-859-8003.

Additionally, as a courtesy the Bethesda North Hotel and Conference Center has arranged an overflow room block located at the Bethesda Marriott, 5151 Pooks Hill Road, Bethesda, Maryland.  The Bethesda Marriott is providing additional sleeping rooms at the group rate based on availability.  To make your room reservation in the overflow block at the Bethesda Marriott, please visit their RIC Conference Reservation webpage or call the Bethesda Marriott directly at 1-800-393-3412 and mention the group code "NRC RIC 2019 Overflow"  Room block pricing is subject to availability at the current U.S. Federal government per diem rate.

If the Bethesda North Hotel and Conference Center is your preferred hotel, you can always check back with the Marriott reservations desk closer to the date of the conference for cancellations and possible room availability at the group rate.  For your convenience, a listing of additional hotels nearby is located on the Hotel Information webpage.

NEW! The RIC is free and open to the public. Participants must register to attend the conference. Online registration for the RIC will be available beginning in early January 2019. 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.
