The River Invertebrate Classification Tool (RICT) was developed by the three UK environmental agencies to classify the ecological quality of rivers.
Please access the user guides and frequently asked questions by logging into RICT.
**Please note that RICT is designed as a data processing rather than a storage service – you may lose run data in the event of a system malfunction or other event. Therefore you are advised to download any critical files/data once your run has finished.**
The Freshwater Biological Association (FBA) run RICT training courses
