The Elevation Certificate and Floodproofing Certificate are used in conjunction with the Flood Insurance Application to determine a building's compliance with local floodplain management provisions and to document elevations in support of flood insurance premiums or discounts that align with the building's risk of damage from flooding. Respondents are primarily surveyors, architects, or engineers; individual property owners may opt to complete specified portions of the Elevation Certificate.

The burden hour per response for FEMA Form FF-206-FY-22-152 (formerly 086-0-33) and FEMA Form FF-206-FY-22-153 (formerly 086-0-34) has remained the same. However, the burden hours for this collection decreased from 46,346 to 12,735 hours, an adjustment decrease of 33,611 hours. This decrease is due to a decrease in the number of flood insurance applications being submitted to the NFIP Direct Servicing Agent, many of which were rated based on elevation data provided on the certificates. Since the Elevation Certificate and Floodproofing Certificate are submitted in conjunction with an application for flood insurance, fewer applications being submitted results in fewer Elevation Certificates and Floodproofing Certificates being submitted. The total number of responses for the Elevation Certificate has decreased from 12,359 to 3,350 (-9,009 responses). The number of responses for the Floodproofing Certificate has increased from 1 to 2 responses. The change in the Annual Cost Burden is an adjustment decrease due to a decrease in the number of respondents for FEMA Form FF-206-FY-22-152 (formerly 086-0-33) from 12,359 to 3,350, and a decrease in cost per response due to decreased Surveyor wage rates. The net change decreases annual respondent burden cost from $2,065,465 to $609,976. Annual maintenance costs were corrected to $0 due to double counting costs in respondent burden costs and annual maintenance costs previously estimates $4,325,650. The total annual cost burden for this collection has decreased from $6,391,113 to $610,424. Effective October 1, 2021, the NFIP implemented the new Risk Rating 2.0 pricing methodology, which no longer requires an Elevation Certificate for rating as FEMA can supply the ground elevation and First Floor Height measurement using sourced data and geospatial technology.
