New Elevation Certificate is now available!

FEMA announced in a March 1 bulletin that the newly revised Elevation Certificate (FEMA form 086-0-33) can now be accessed at:

https://www.fema.gov/media-library/assets/documents/160

Here is the bulletin that was issued with the new EC – the new EC reflects some of the recommended changes that many of you have been having trouble with, including “the rounding issue”.

You will note that it has already been discovered that “C2.a-h, Section E and G8-G10 forces the entry of two decimal places (whether the data was captured to 2 place-accuracy or not). Section E instructions have been updated to reference the two decimal places (“nearest hundredth”); however, C2 was not,"

This form expires November 2018.

As you use the Elevation Certificate, please provide any suggested changes or comments to the Insurance Committee of the Association of State Floodplain Managers (ASFPM) at InsuranceCorner@floods.org – they have been advocating for change (on your behalf) since the last EC came out!
