WASHINGTON (2/8/13)--The U.S. Treasury Department's Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) has released an improved search tool for its Specially Designated National (SDN) list.
The new tool employs "fuzzy logic" so a user's search terms can be approximate rather than fixed or exact. In addition to returning exact matches, the SDN Search can also provide a broader set of results using fuzzy logic.
The tool is in a beta test phase and will run in parallel with the older exact-character-match SDN search tool for approximately 30 days. It will then replace the older search tool.
