Risk MAP Guidelines and Standards 2016 Spring Maintenance Cycle

The Federal Emergency Management Agency maintains guidelines and standards to support the Risk Mapping, Assessment and Planning (Risk MAP) Program. These guidelines and standards define the specific implementation of the statutory and regulatory requirements for the National Flood Insurance Program. These also outline the performance of flood risk projects, processing of Letters of Map Change  and related Risk MAP activities. More information is available at: www.fema.gov/guidelines-and-standards-flood-risk-analysis-and-mapping.

FEMA has a maintenance plan for the Risk MAP guidelines and standards and issues updates on a semi-annual basis. View a summary of the proposed changes to standards and guidelines, which are expected to be released in May 2016.

In addition to routine maintenance, FEMA plans to issue new and updated standards, guidance, technical references and related documents to implement the mapping program defined by the Biggert Waters Flood Insurance Reform Act and the Homeowner Flood Insurance Affordability Act that can be completed without new regulations.
