Although FEMA is willingly publishing FEMA 310, users should
understand that the document is a Pre-Standard and not a final
document.  It represents the work of a handful of people and not
the opinion of the committee.  There are many issues that have
not yet been resolved, 43 issues were brought up at the last
committee meeting and were not resolved before the
Pre-Standard was completed.  The committee balloting is taking
place now.  After all of the committee comments have been
resolved, which could take until 1999, the document will be
subject to public ballot.  This process should also be expected to
take months.  Therefore, the final document may not be available
for use until the year 2000.  As a member of the committee, I
would caution against using the document until the final version
has been approved.
