Welcome to FindLaw's Cases & Codes, a free source of state and federal court opinions, state laws, and the United States Code. For more information about the legal concepts addressed by these cases and statutes, visit FindLaw's Learn About the Law.

(1) “Truncation agreement” means an agreement, clearinghouse rule, or federal reserve regulation or operating circular, providing that presentment of an item may be made by transmission of an image of an item or information describing the item (“presentment notice”) rather than delivery of the item itself. The agreement may provide for procedures governing retention, presentment, payment, dishonor, and other matters concerning items subject to the truncation agreement.

(2) If presentment is made pursuant to a truncation agreement, a reference to “item” or “check” in this chapter means the presentment notice unless the context otherwise indicates.

(3) An intermediary bank handling a presentment notice pursuant to a truncation agreement has the rights of a holder of the item to the same extent it would have had rights in the item if the item had been physically transferred to it in the course of collection.
