Expired FEMA Elevation Certificate has been Extended Again

Posted on Oct 28, 2015 in NFIP News, Uncategorized

The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) Elevation Certificate (FEMA form 086-0-33) and Floodproofing Certificate (FEMA form 086-0-34) forms are currently under review at the Office of Management and Budget (OMB). OMB has extended the expiration date of these forms to November 30, 2015. Until the OMB review process is complete, please continue to use the existing forms available on FEMA’s website. Upon OMB approval, FEMA will update the website to include the new Elevation Certificate and Floodproofing Certificate forms. (http://www.nfipiservice.com/Stakeholder/pdf/bulletin/w-15056.pdf)

As a reminder once the new form is released, there is typically a 12-month “phase in” period during which both the old and new forms can be used. Elevations certified after the last day of the transition period must use the new form. When the new form is approved and released, it will be available on FEMA’s website (www.fema.gov) and on the Hawaii NFIP website (www.hawaiinfip.org), as well as integrated into the Hawaii Flood Hazard Assessment Tool’s Elevation Certificate Initiation Tool.
