Nationwide Elevation Certificates

What is an Elevation Certificate?

An Elevation Certificate (EC) is a crucial document that provides essential data about the elevation of a building relative to the mean sea level or base flood elevation. This information is especially vital for properties located within Special Flood Hazard Areas (SFHAs) as defined by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA). An EC aids in determining appropriate flood insurance premiums and ensuring compliance with local floodplain management regulations.
