NCP Series (continued)
Standards and Formats
February 6 1 PM – 2:30 CT / 2 PM – 3:30 PM ET
Are all those different X9 standards confusing? This session helps sort them out. From X9.100-140, the
substitute check standard; to X9.100-187, the image cash letter standard; to X9.100-188, the return
reasons for check image exchange and IRDs, this session walks you through the basics. The Universal
Companion Document or UCD to the X9.100-187 standard is also discussed.
Image Exchange: Rules and Agreements (part 1)
February 13 1 PM – 2:30 CT / 2 PM – 3:30 PM ET
Why are rules and agreements needed for image exchange? This session answers the question and
reviews the rules for the predominant image exchange models: ECCHO Operating Rules and the
Federal Reserve Operating Circular 3 (OC 3). Part I focuses on the private sector image exchange
channel and looks at private agreements, with most of the session focused on the ECCHO Operating
Rules and commentary.
Image Exchange: Rules and Agreements (part 2)
February 15 1 PM – 2:30 CT / 2 PM – 3:30 PM ET
This session again asks the question of why rules are needed for image exchange as it completes the
two-part review of the rules for the predominant image exchange models. Part II focuses on the key
provisions of image exchange through the Federal Reserve with a review of Operating Circular 3 (OC 3),
and how and where Regulation J is included. A brief comparison of the key similarities and differences
between the discussed industry rule sets, ECCHO Operating Rules and Federal Reserve’s OC 3, is included
at the end of this session.
Image Exchange: Processes
January 9 10 AM – 11:30 CT / 11AM – 12:30 PM ET
February 27 1 PM – 2:30 CT / 2 PM – 3:30 PM ET
The image cash letter (ICL) is discussed in this session with a focus on how the ICL is built based on the
image exchange standards. Scenarios are used to show various processing examples of the steps in how
an ICL öle is built; how the records are populated to move the image öle through a forward versus return
process; and in which operational situations you would need one record type versus another. Detailed
examples and handouts are provided. Our overview of the “day in the life of a check” in an image
environment covers common Day 1 and Day 2 processes. Paper exchange processes are minimally covered.
