EasyOFAC API

Build enterprise-class OFAC compliance into your application with our easy to understand API.



api/nameSearch

Perform a fuzzy search for an individual on the OFAC SDN List.

Metered Endpoint

Usage of this endpoint counts towards your billable usage. Remember you can append 'test=1' to any query, switching to test mode. This will limit your search to OFAC entity numbers ≤ 4000, but will not count towards your account's billable usage. For your testing purposes, we have provided a list of all SDN records that should be visible in test mode here: EasyOFAC SDN Test List (CSV format).

Notes

Fuzzy searching allows you to check for different spellings that are phonetically similar. For example, try the above search again, replacing "MANUEL" with "MANWELL", and "NORIEGA" with "NORIAGA". Also, try experimenting to get an idea of how far off the spelling can get before you no longer get a match returned.

Try It

Try it yourself... Feel free to change the parameters to test out different values.

Note: The Demo API Key always operates in test mode. Disabling test mode for a different key will enable logging for this paid endpoint.
