Remote Deposit Capture (RDC)
& Check Image Services

The FFIEC released guidance for Financial Institutions (FIs) regarding risk management of Remote Deposit Capture (RDC) in 2009 and the IT Examination Handbook was updated in 2010 to include additional risk management best practices regarding RDC found in the Retail Payment System Handbook section.

RDC is a Deposit Transaction Delivery System which allows a FI to receive digital information from deposit documents captured at remote locations. These locations could be one or many branches of your FI (Branch Capture), ATMs, domestic and foreign correspondents, commercial customers (Corporate or Merchant Capture), small businesses, or consumers.

If you are the person responsible for your FI's Depository Transaction Delivery System, then you need to know what examiners and regulators will be looking for. UMACHA is here to help!

UMACHA is a resource that can provide you up-to-date industry information, educational opportunities, customized training, on-site consulting, RDC risk assessments and publications about RDC and Image Exchange.
