Grammar logics were introduced by Fariñas del Cerro and Penttonen in 1988 and have been widely studied. In this paper we consider regular grammar logics with converse (REGc logics) and present sound and complete tableau calculi for the general satisfiability problem of REGc logics and the problem of checking consistency of an ABox w.r.t. a TBox in a REGc logic. Using our calculi we develop ExpTime (optimal) tableau decision procedures for the mentioned problems, to which various optimization techniques can be applied. We also prove a new result that the data complexity of the instance checking problem in REGc logics is coNP-complete.
