The Federal Reserve Banks will conduct internal application testing for the Check 21 system on Saturday, Feb. 25, 2023. Testing will take place between the hours of 9 a.m. ET and 2 p.m. ET.
Your Check 21 file delivery processing will be affected as follows:
- Image on Demand customers using the FedLine Web® Solution will not be able to connect and query images until after the testing period is complete.
- FedLine Direct® and IBM Connect:Direct® customers will not be able to send files to the Federal Reserve Banks' landing zone. Files must be submitted after the testing activities are completed and production processing resumes.
- Small Value Payment Company (SVPCO) customers will be able to send files to the SVPCO Distributed Traffic Agent (DTA), but "pulled" and "validated" messages will not be generated. Files will remain in queue on the DTA until the Federal Reserve Banks re-enable connections to the DTA and production processing resumes.
- Internet customers using the FedLine Web® Solution or Axway®'s SecureTransport will be able to connect and upload files to the Federal Reserve.
Please direct any questions or concerns to FedACH® and Check Services Customer Support.
