The regulatory requirements for private flood insurance have been undergoing change since Congress passed and the President signed the Biggert-Waters Flood Insurance Reform Act (Biggert-Waters Act) in 2012. Finally, the almost seven-year journey is complete. During January 2019 the Comptroller of the Currency, the Federal Reserve Board, the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation, and the Farm Credit Administration (the Agencies) published a final rule implementing the private flood insurance rules, effective July 1, 2019.
Every financial institution must adapt their policies and procedures for the new rules. The potential civil monetary penalties for non-compliance with the revisions are substantial. The final rule differs dramatically from the previous regulatory guidance and from the 2016 proposed rule.
This recording explains the new final rules for private flood insurance, explores the options for compliance and provides suggestions for successful implementation of the requirements.
You’ll receive a detailed manual that serves as a handbook long after viewing the recording.
