Federal Emergency Management Agency

Review of New Standards for Flood Hazard Mapping (FHM)

Main Content

The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) maintains a set of documents called the Guidelines and Specifications for Flood Hazard Mapping Partners to support flood risk mapping for the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP).  These documents define technical requirements, product specifications for Flood Hazard Maps and related NFIP products, and requirements associated coordination and documentation activities.  As part of a broad review of FEMA policy, FEMA has reviewed all of these requirements and developed a set of about 450 standards for the program as a replacement for all of the standards in the current documents.

FEMA intends to publish these standards as a FEMA policy.  The draft standards are being made available for public review to provide an opportunity to comment prior to the finalization of the policy.
