Attendees learn the various ACH participants, the Standard Entry Class (SEC) Codes and their applications, and ACH transaction flows from origination to receipt.

This webinar also explores the roles and responsibilities of each ACH participant, as well as authorization and audit requirements. We identify the four main types of risk associated with ACH processing. Of course, no discussion on ACH is complete without prenotifications, exceptions, returns, and reversals!
