Flood Insurance Revised Flood Hazard Determination Form
FIL-8-2009 January 30, 2009
The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) has issued the attached revised Standard Flood Hazard Determination Form (SFHDF), which includes a new Office of Management and Budget (OMB) control number. The form's format and content have not changed. The updated form must be used beginning June 16, 2009.
The National Flood Insurance Reform Act of 1994 and FDIC regulations (12 CFR 339.6) require FDIC- supervised banks to use FEMA's SFHDF when determining whether a building or mobile home offered as security for a loan will be located in a Special Flood Hazard Area.
The OMB conducted a periodic review of the SFHDF, as required by the Paperwork Reduction Act, and issued a revised form with a new control number.
The updated SFHDF, with the new control number, must be used beginning June 16, 2009.
