Procedure Memorandum No. 63 - Guidance for Reviewing Levee Accreditation Submittals
In accordance with NFIP regulations, communities or other parties seeking accreditation and recognition of a levee system as providing protection on NFIP maps must provide data and documentation demonstrating compliance with regulations set forth in the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) at Title 44, Chapter 1, Section 65.10 (44 CFR Section 65.10). Once compliance is demonstrated the levee system will be accredited on NFIP maps, reflecting the appropriate risk zones for levee-impacted areas. Following issuance of Procedure Memorandum (PM) Nos. 34 and 43, dated August 22, 2005, and September 25, 2006, respectively, and revised PM 43 dated March 16, 2007, FEMA has seen an increase in the number of accreditation request submittals. The attached guidelines are being issued to improve and clarify the process of review for compliance with 44 CFR Section 65.10. The review process, "completeness check", is described in detail in the attached document, entitled "Guidelines for Reviewing Levee Accreditation Submittals."
