Each participant in the ACH Network is required to be in compliance with the Nacha Operating Rules. There are several NEW amendments recently passed which will change the ACH Network processes – this is a NEED to know! In addition, an overview on Operations Bulletins (issued by Nacha) will be discussed (there are six of them for 2020).

The NACHA Operating Rules are always changing, updates have recently been made and continue to be in place due to the current COVID-19 situation! There are six ACH Operations Bulletins posted by Nacha in 2020; four of them explain the updates to the Rules due to changes at financial institutions and extensions of effective dates in light of the current situation; and confirming some Rules changes with current effective dates remaining. Details necessary to help participants in the ACH Network remain compliant with these NEW amendments going into effect for 2021 and 2022, including Unauthorized Returns and the ACH Contact Registry that went into effect in 2020!

Plus, details on the most recent amendments with effective dates in 2021 and 2022; on “Meaningful Modernization”, “Reversals and Enforcement” and “Limitation on Warranty Claims”. Included are details on a potential change regarding “Account Information Improvements Through the ACH Network”.

You will learn about the impacts of the ACH Contact Registration Rule – which went into effect on July 1, 2020!

This session will also cover the newly approved details and any recent updates by NACHA, plus how these changes affect you as a participant in the ACH network, whether you are an ODFI, an RDFI or a TPS or TPSP.

Product Reviews Write review

Presenter was excellent, knowledgeable and able to present information clearly. The discussion/examples on the timing for the receipt of same day entries. The refresher on the definitions of settlement, effective dates and availability. Third party sender vs processor discussion.
