What is it?
The Office of Foreign Assets Control ("OFAC") of the US Department of the Treasury identifies individuals, groups, and entities who have been flagged by the Office of Foreign Asset Control to include terrorists, international narcotics traffickers, those engaged in activities related to the proliferation of weapons of mass destruction, and other threats to the national security, foreign policy or economy of the United States.
These individuals and groups are designated under programs that are not country-specific.
How does it work?
OFAC's Sanctions List Search tool employs fuzzy logic on its name search field to look for potential matches on the Specially Designated Nationals (SDN) List and on its Non-SDN Consolidated Sanctions List. This consolidated list includes the Foreign Sanctions Evaders List, the Sectoral Sanctions Identifications List, the List of Foreign Financial Institutions Subject to Correspondent Account or Payable-Through Account Sanctions, the Non-SDN Palestinian Legislative Council List, the Non-SDN Menu-Based Sanctions List, and the Non-SDN Communist Chinese Military Companies List.
Who needs this search?
Companies involved in the international world of business who are seeking to do their due diligence to remain compliant with US sanctions programs when hiring candidates.
Why run this search?
The OFAC search will identify anyone who is a potential threat to US national security and will confirm if an individual is authorized to conduct business in the US.
