LOMR Submittals and the new FIRM Database Requirements

LOMR applicants should be required to provide all engineering backup data that would be necessary for the PTS contractors to update the new 2012 FIRM Database and new format FIS. Having an NFHL that shows an incorporated LOMR SFHA but leaves major components of the FIRM database and FIS report with obsolete data from previous underlying models in unacceptable. The new FIRM database template stores the engineering data capture standards (DCS) backup previously required only for studies, not for revisions.
