The New York Clearing House Association has formed a regional check- clearing exchange it hopes will simplify check clearing and settlement for New York-area banks by absorbing smaller regional clearing houses.

The Long Island Clearing Association is the first clearing house merging its operations into the new organization, which is called the Northeast Regional Check Exchange. The Long Island association settles about 525,000 checks a day for 16 bank members.
