Risk Management Registrations and Services

Through collaboration with the industry, NACHA provides financial institutions with several key vehicles for effective risk mitigation. These strategies come into play both during the development and implementation of risk management programs, and they’re commensurate with the inherent risk in ACH origination activities:

  • Requiring ODFIs to register their Direct Access Status
  • Providing a means of reporting ACH data breaches
  • Maintaining the Terminated Originator Database

ACH Network participants who practice sound risk management contribute to NACHA’s collective ability to ensure a safe and secure payments Network for the industry.
