Dear users, we are currently in the process of upgrading RICT to take account of further developments. This will include the capacity to classify WHPT as per the UKTAG method statement (see the UKTAG Website for details).

The upgrade will mean that there will be a period of 1 week when RICT will be unavailable allowing us to carry out the upload and of the new functionality. This is planned for the week commencing on the 19th January 2015.

Please accept our apologies for the disruption in advance - however the work will considerably add to the capability of RICT and allow classification according to the latest UK standards.

As ever contact us via ishelpdesk@sepa.org.uk if you encounter problems
