New SDN Search Tool

The Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) launched a new and improved tool for searching its Specially Designated Nationals List (SDN)The new version of SDN Search provides users with much greater leeway when searching for names for the tool no longer returns only exact matches.  SDN Search now makes use of character, string, and phonetic matching algorithms to provide the user with a broader set of results.  This gives SDN Search the ability to account for differences in spelling and transliteration.    

This upgraded version of SDN Search, previously available as a beta release, replaces the earlier version.  OFAC received and reviewed feedback from the public on its new search tool.  OFAC is offering this upgraded search tool free to the public to give users of the SDN List an improved search experience that will help them meet their compliance obligations.   
 
Please see the related FAQs for additional information on algorithms, scoring, and other technical details.
