FEMA Prepares New Draft Guideline and Specifications for Flood Hazard Mapping Partners

October 9, 2001
FEMA has prepared draft guidelines and specifications for Flood Hazard Mapping Partners. The guidelines are available to the public for review and comment. They define the technical requirements, coordination, and documentation activities as well as product specifications for flood hazard maps and related National Flood Insurance Program products. The guidelines represent a compilation of the requirements documented in previous FEMA guidelines. They also reflect changes associated with FEMA Map Modernization Program objectives. The guidelines, when finalized, will supersede certain FEMA guidelines and specifications documents. Visit http://www.fema.gov/mit/tsd/dl_cgs.htm. Written comments may be submitted to FEMA by FEMACG&S@floodmaps.net no later than Nov. 9, 2001.
