Background On May 16, 2019, the Board published a Federal Register notice (Notice) seeking public comment on modifications to the Reserve Banks’ payment services to facilitate adoption of a later same-day ACH processing and settlement window.1 As described more fully in the Notice, the ACH network is made up of two network operators: The Reserve Banks, which operate the FedACH® service, and The Clearing House Payments Company L.L.C. (TCH), which operates the Electronic Payments Network (EPN) service.2 The ACH network is governed by the rules of the ACH operators, which generally incorporate the Nacha Operating Rules 1 84 FR 22123 (May 16, 2019). In addition, the Board has announced that the Federal Reserve intends to explore further expanded hours for NSS and the Fedwire Funds Service, up to 24 × 7 × 365, to support a wide range of payment activities, including liquidity management in private-sector real-time gross settlement services for faster payments. See 84 FR 39297 (August 9, 2019). The Board is analyzing the risk, operational, and policy implications of further expanding operating hours of NSS and the Fedwire Funds Service. 2 The Reserve Banks settle all ACH transactions that are originated or received by FedACH customers, including transactions that are exchanged between the two operators. TCH arranges settlement for only those ACH transactions that are originated and received by EPN customers (that is, transactions within the EPN network). The Reserve Banks settle ACH transactions by posting credits and debits to the sending and receiving banks’ Federal Reserve accounts at the settlement time and date provided in the FedACH processing schedule. TCH uses NSS to settle its in-network ACH transactions in participants’ Federal Reserve accounts, typically sending NSS files at the same times the Reserve Banks settle FedACH transactions.
