The draft PFRA was made available for public consultation in August 2011. All submissions and observations received during the consultation period were taken in to account in the finalisation of the PFRA which was then reported to the EU Commission as required under the 2007 EU Floods Directive.

Final Designation of the Areas for Further Assessment (AFAs)
Professional flood risk managers visited all areas being considered as AFAs to validate the findings of the PFRA on the ground. The outcomes of the public consultation and this professional validation were carefully considered by the OPW, in conjunction with the local authorities, prior to the finalisation of the AFAs, designated for further assessment under the CFRAM Programme.
