What You Need to Know
You must submit a list with the name and citizenship of each visitor, including any bus drivers. This group roster must reach the AEDC Public Affairs Office at least seven working days in advance of your group's scheduled visit. If U.S. citizenship is by naturalization, the naturalization number must be shown.
Anyone not listed on your group roster should not be brought to AEDC. They will not be allowed to tour and their presence will delay or shorten your tour.
Tours are conducted in an industrial area and involve walking, some on steel grating, and climbing stairs. Comfortable walking shoes should be worn. DO NOT WEAR HIGH HEELS, OPEN-TOED SHOES OR SANDALS
. Anyone not wearing appropriate footwear will not be allowed to tour. Children 8 years old or older are welcome to tour.
Special Provisions for Foreign Nationals
Foreign nationals from NATO, allied and friendly countries generally can tour AEDC. However, they must be identified on the roster, and they must bring photo identification with them. Rosters containing foreign nationals must be submitted 14 business days in advance of the tour date. You should confirm that all foreign nationals on your list have been approved by AEDC PRIOR to touring.
Special Arrangements for Mobility Impaired
AEDC is a large industrial complex - most of the facilities we tour are not equipped for mobility-impaired persons. We can, however, on a case-by-case basis, arrange tours for the mobility impaired but arrangements must be made prior to touring.
Size of Tour Groups
A tour group should consist of at least 15 people and a maximum of 35. Larger groups are considered on a case-by-case basis. Tour groups must provide transportation while touring. A small shuttle or large bus is acceptable. Multiple cars or a caravan of vehicles are not allowed for touring.
Use of cameras and video recorders is not permitted. Smoking is not allowed during tours.
