NACHA rule changes will require ACH originators of WEB debit to add account validation as part of their fraud detection system. This NACHA rule change is planned to go into effect March 19,2021. Lyons Commercial Data is a NACHA partner and provides several options so ACH originators can have the tools to meet new rules. Stay compliant and reduce fraud by implementing our account verification tool.  This tool can assist in ACH account validation by confirming that the correct bank account number is used in a transaction.

ABA Routing Numbers and NACHA Compliance

To reduce the number of administrative returns entered in the ACH Network, NACHA compliance requires companies originating ACH transactions to use commercially reasonable procedures to verify that routing numbers are valid for WEB and TEL ACH transactions. One way to do this is to verify the length and the check digit of the routing number, and to make sure it is properly formed. However, verifying the length cannot prevent the use of the routing number.
