Build enterprise-class OFAC compliance into your application with our easy to understand API.
Perform a fuzzy search for an individual on the OFAC SDN List.
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).
The returned array may contain any number of objects of type OfacSdn, OfacAlt:
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".

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