Risk MAP Standards and Guidance Release Delayed Until February
Friday, October 13, 2017

Risk MAP Standards and Guidance release delayed until February 2018

The Federal Emergency Management Agency maintains guidelines and standards to support the Risk Mapping, Assessment and Planning 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 FEMA.gov.

FEMA has a maintenance plan for the Risk MAP guidelines and standards and issues updates on an annual basis. This notice provides information about a schedule change to the annual update, which was originally expected to be released in November 2017.

Because of the series of significant disasters over the past two months, FEMA is delaying the finalization and release of the standards and guidance until February 2018. This will allow FEMA to continue this important work, while recognizing that staff time and resources are focused on the ongoing response and recovery operations.

The period for comments on the guidance documents is being extended until Oct. 31.

The scope of the update is going to continue as planned.

If you have feedback about FEMA’s guidelines and standards, submit comments or suggestions by email to FEMA.GS@riskmapcds.com.
