Agencies Propose Revisions to Interagency Questions and Answers Regarding Flood Insurance
March 21, 2008
Circular No. 11943

The federal bank, thrift, credit union and Farm Credit System regulatory agencies have requested public comment on new and revised interagency questions and answers regarding flood insurance.

The Interagency Questions and Answers Regarding Flood Insurance were first published in 1997 under the auspices of the Federal Financial Institutions Examination Council.  The agencies have proposed new questions and answers, as well as substantive and technical revisions to the existing guidance, to help financial institutions meet their responsibilities under federal flood insurance legislation and to increase public understanding of the flood insurance regulations.

After public comments are received and considered and the Interagency Questions and Answers are final, they would supersede the 1997 Interagency Questions and Answers and supplement other guidance or interpretations issued by the agencies and the Federal Emergency Management Agency.
