The Technical Bulletins provide
guidance concerning the building performance standards of
the NFIP, which are contained in Title 44 of the U.S. Code
of Federal Regulations at Section 60.3. The bulletins are
intended for use primarily by State and local officials
responsible for interpreting and enforcing NFIP regulations
and by members of the development community, such as design
professionals and builders.
New bulletins, as well as updates of existing bulletins, are
issued periodically as needed. The bulletins do not create
regulations, rather they provide specific guidance for
complying with the minimum requirements of existing NFIP
regulations. Users of the Technical Bulletins who need
additional guidance concerning NFIP regulatory requirements
should contact the appropriate FEMA Regional Office.
