Italian term or phrase: chiave RIC
In my railway rolling stock tech spec, much reference is made to locks which are activated by means of a "chiavetta femmina di servizio RIC". I assume this means a universal socket key, but what does RIC stand for??

Explanation:
RIC => Regolamento Internazionale Carrozze

if it fits your context I don't think it should be translated

http://europa.eu.int/eur-lex/lex/LexUriServ/LexUriServ.do?ur...

There are agreements between the railways on the interoperability of passenger carriages and of freight wagons, the **Regolamento Internazionale Carrozze** and Regolamento Internazionale Veicoli (generally known as the RIC and RIV respectively) [6]. Under these, each network accepts a vehicle when its construction complies with a number of UIC leaflets. The RIC and RIV agreements allow the interoperability of accepted and registered vehicles throughout Europe. In addition, the agreements define the responsibility of networks for other aspects of international operations. Acceptance of vehicles under the RIC and RIV is the responsibility of the railways, there being one registering railway in each country. The agreements were an important step towards interoperability and the UIC leaflets a major attempt at harmonisation.
