Are you ready for Check 21?

Check 21 is a federal law that is designed to enable banks to handle more checks electronically, which should make check processing faster and more efficient. Today, banks often must physically move original paper checks from the bank where the checks are deposited to the bank that pays them. This transportation can be inefficient and costly. Check 21 became effective on October 28, 2004.

Instead of physically moving paper checks from one bank to another, Check 21 will allow banks to process more checks electronically. Banks can capture a picture of the front and back of the check along with the associated payment information and transmit this information electronically. If a receiving bank or its customer requires a paper check, the bank can use the electronic picture and payment information to create a paper “substitute check.” This process enables banks to reduce the cost of physically handling and transporting original paper checks, which can be very expensive.

A substitute check is a paper copy of the front and back of the original check. A substitute check is slightly larger than a standard personal check so that it can contain a picture of your original check. A substitute check must be printed in accordance with very specific standards so that the substitute check can be used in the same way as the original check. If you receive a substitute check that appears to have a problem, such as it contains a bad picture of your original check, contact your bank.


What do I need to do?

In order to comply to Check 21 all checks must be image compatible in order to achieve this process you must comply to the ANSI X9.7 standard. Insuring that all background screening, logo's and the five areas of interest comply to the specification. We recommend the Clearwave M1027-95 Image Placement & Location Gauge for precise placement and location of the five areas of interest and the RDM Image Qualifier to measure check background screens, legibility convenience amount scan area, date, pay to, legal written amount.
