How We Match

OFAC-API's individual and entity screening and search functions were designed in coordination with the U.S. Department of the Treasury based on the latest guidelines, which call for a fuzzy logic search. The search algorithm utilizes multiple matching techniques: Jaro-Winkler character similarity and Soundex phonetic matching.

The search returns exact matches as well as partial matches that meet a minimum threshold as defined by the user. The higher the threshold, the fewer results will be returned and the higher the likelihood of a match.

Please visit the Treasury Department's official policies for more information on the guidelines.


The APIs allow for customized queries based on your organization's risks. For example, query only entities, ignore aliases, and use a strong threshold configuration to avoid false positives. API results are structured and available in software engineers' preferred data formats.
