Flood Protection Structure Accreditation Task Force

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (USACE) and Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) have established the Flood Protection Structure Accreditation Task Force.  Its goal is to develop recommendations for aligning agency processes so information collected for either USACE Inspection of Completed Works (ICW) program purposes or National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) levee accreditation purposes can be used interchangeably and to align the information and data collected by or for the USACE ICW program so it is sufficient to satisfy NFIP accreditation requirements for levee systems.The Task Force is to develop recommendations to align agency processes so information collected for either USACE Inspection of Completed Works (ICW) program purposes or National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP) levee accreditation purposes can be used interchangeably, and so the information and data collected by the USACE ICW program is sufficient to satisfy NFIP accreditation requirements for flood protection structures (levees) specified in 44 Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) 65.10.

Task Force Requests Stakeholder Feedback

The Task Force conducted four web meetings in March 2013 to provide information on progress to-date and to solicit feedback on the potential recommendations.
