March Conference to Focus on Nuclear Safety

The Nuclear Regulatory Commission will hold its 20th Annual Regulatory Information Conference (RIC) March 11-13, at the Marriott Bethesda North, 5701 Marinelli Road, Rockville, Md. This year's theme is Enhancing Safety During the Global Nuclear Renaissance. More than 2,300 people are expected to attend, including representatives from more than 25 foreign countries, members of Congress and the nuclear industry.

Agency speakers at the conference will include NRC Chairman Dale Klein and Commissioners Gregory Jaczko, Peter Lyons and Executive Director for Operations Luis Reyes. The conference brings together NRC staff, regulated utilities, materials users and other interested stakeholders to discuss nuclear safety topics, significant and timely regulatory activities and allow informal dialogue to ensure an open regulatory process. Topics at this year's RIC include: construction and licensing of new nuclear power plants; safe disposal of nuclear waste; advanced reactor designs to improve safety; security; safety research and operator training.
