Preparing for your annual NACHA required ACH Appendix Eight Rules Compliance Audit? Do you want to know what the Top 10 Audit commonly cited audit findings are and how to avoid them?

NACHA requires that every financial institution conduct an annual internal or external audit of compliance with the ACH Rules no later than December 1 of each year, and that the audit be made available to NACHA upon request. While the requirements for the "ACH Rule Compliance Audit" do not prescribe a specific methodology, NACHA does identify specific criteria that must be considered during the annual audits (NACHA Operating Rules, Appendix Eight). Financial institutions and third-party service providers must complete these audits and one of the methods of assuring your institution performs well is to know the most commonly cited audit findings and how to avoid them.

Chelsye Palomo, AAP, APRP, for this informative session where we will present the top ACH audit adverse findings, discuss the underlying ACH Rules requirements, and provide recommendations on how to avoid them in your organization.


Be prepared for your required NACHA Appendix Eight Rules Compliance Audit by understanding the underlying rules as well as the most commonly cited adverse findings.
