A FEMA Flood Elevation Certificate is a standardized document of the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP). It serves as a tool to primarily document the elevation information of a home or building, whether existing or proposed, and serves to ensure compliance with local floodplain management ordinances. FEMA Flood Elevation Certificates are used to underwrite the flood risk of a property and to determine the proper flood insurance premium rate. Elevation Certificates are also part of the documentation required to request revisions to current FEMA Flood Panel Maps. Many municipalities also require this document as part of their permitting process.
Only a state-licensed professional such as a Professional Land Surveyor (PLS), Registered Professional Engineer (PE), or (in some states), a Licensed Architect is permitted to provide the FEMA Flood Elevation Certificate. It is important to note that only a PLS can provide services relating to property lines, such as Boundary Surveys. It is therefore advisable that if both elevation and survey work are needed, working with a PLS typically is most cost-effective and serves to streamline your project.
