Special information

International ACH information

Effective September 18, 2009, all international transactions made via the ACH Network are required to use the International ACH Transactions (IAT) SEC code. This rule applies to all ACH participants and simplifies the process of identifying international transactions by requiring that IAT entries include specific data elements defined by the Bank Secrecy Act's (BSA) "Travel Rule."

In all situations it will be assumed that the transactions are originating at a bank located within the territorial jurisdiction of the United States. All IAT transactions are considered outbound items, and the destination country must be a country that accepts US Dollars. Currently the application supports international ACH transactions to Canada, Mexico, and the United States.
