To assist U.S. financial institutions with growing corporate customer needs, NACHA developed instructions outlining how to map the ISO 20022 payment files to ACH transactions. The ISO 20022 Mapping Guide standardizes the practice of mapping ISO 20022 formatted payment messages to corresponding NACHA file formats including CCD, CTX, and IAT. The purpose of this webinar is to instruct participants on usage of the Mapping Guide and to answer related questions.
