What is EPC-6 for Remote Created Checks?
EPC-6 Standard for RCCs
External Processing Code [EPC]
Remote Created Checks [RCC]
All RCC items should have the MICR “6” symbol in code line #44 as shown in this sample.
EPC-6 is a standard adopted to denote the difference between an original check created by the account holder and signed with an original signature, and a Remote Created Check [RCC] that has NO SIGNATURE REQUIRED.
If you use CheckWriter™, the EPC-6 code can be turned on and off with a toggle on the main screen, or can be set to default ON or default OFF, depending on your bank’s requirements.
