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 the community. Throughout the conference, attendees may participate in dynamic sessions featuring panelists addressing a broad range of topics of interest. To complement the technical program, interactive digital exhibits will be available for participants to view at their leisure. Attendees also have an opportunity to participate in virtual 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!
