Cheque Printing Guidelines

 

There are many changes taking place in the Eastern Caribbean Currency Union (ECCU), one of the most significant is the Eastern Caribbean Automated Clearing House (ECACH).  This is a new, universal cheque processing system, which will allow for the faster and more efficient payment of cheques.  This new system, introduced by the Eastern Caribbean Central Bank facilitates one day processing of another bank’s cheque (locally and regionally) deposited to your account.  You will derive a number of benefits from its implementation, including:

  1. Quicker access to funds due to same day clearing of cheques
  2. The ability to better manage your finances with faster access to your funds with the added knowledge that your cheques will be processed to your account faster
  3. A reduction in cheque fraud within the system with the improved cheque design.
