Tackling the ACH Audit & Risk Assessment
ACH Audits and Risk Assessments are two very important and sometimes confusing tasks. Learn what you’re looking for when completing both and how to avoid common mistakes and violations.

It is mandatory for financial institutions to complete or have completed an ACH Audit annually. The ACH Risk Assessment needs to be done every time there are changes to your ACH program and when your possible risks change. These are two very important and sometimes confusing tasks.

Join us to learn the difference between an ACH assessment and an audit, what you’re looking for when completing both and how to avoid common mistakes and violations.


Upon completion of this program you will learn:

  • The audit requirements for all ACH participants
  • Where others have been non-compliant and how not to make the same mistakes
  • What auditors should be looking for when performing the ACH audit
  • The importance of the ACH risk assessment
  • Areas that should be included in the ACH risk assessment

Your speaker is an ACH Auditor – get all your ACH audit and risk assessment questions answered by attending this webinar.
