Shape Proposed Rules Through Your Comments

Benefit Icon

By commenting on proposed NACHA Operating Rules changes, Network users strengthen ACH Network payments. NACHA seeks to adapt and grow the ACH Network to respond to today’s payments environment, which means regularly adding to and amending the Rules.

To ensure that each new Rule meets user needs and protects the integrity of the Network, we rely on your input. All ACH Network participants are invited to review the proposed Rules and add comments by way of the survey, linked within the Rule text. We encourage you to gather information from all impacted areas of your organization. Comment letters by email are also welcome. NACHA seeks public comments to inform the next steps in our rulemaking process. We will share a summary of responses and those planned steps following the close of the comment period.
