Working With Government, Industry
Nacha seeks to protect the interests of private-sector rulemaking and ACH Network participants by fostering positive collaboration with key U.S. government entities, including legislators and regulators (e.g., the Federal Reserve, the Consumer Financial Services Bureau and U.S. Department of Treasury), in addition to financial services and end-user trade groups.
Nacha’s feedback to regulators, Congressional committees, members of Congress and staff and other governmental agencies means that the ACH Network is put to the best use at a governmental level.
Members and ACH Network participants enjoy clear explanations and assistance, from Nacha, about how government initiatives affect the ACH Network.
Financial trade groups and end-users trades have a voice in the inclusive process of rulemaking.
