Learn what a Third-Party Sender (TPS) is and how this impacts you as a participant in the ACH Network (as an ODFI or TPS). Attend this training session to help identify and determine if you have a Third-Party Sender relationship.
If there is a relationship, the discussion will include the initial and basic information (details) needed for registration of that Third-Party Seder with NACHA.
The ODFI is responsible for the registration process for any Third-Party Senders and nested TPS; registration is also necessary even if there is no TPS relationship.
Why should you Attend
A NEW Rule was recently approved and will require Originating Depository Financial Institutions (ODFIs) to identify and register their Third-Party Sender customers with NACHA. (If there is no TPS relationship, the ODFI will still be responsible for registering the no TPS with NACHA).
The registration process will promote consistent customer due diligence among all ODFIs, and serve as a tool to support NACHA's continuing efforts to maintain ACH Network quality.
In order to understand the impact, this will make on the different participants (specifically Third Parties) - we need to identify the "Third-Party Sender"- extremely detailed examples will be used to help with this identification (due diligence) process.
