Terrorist Sanctions List Search: OFAC/CLFST, OSFI
Reveal known terrorists, specially designated nationals, narcotics traffickers, and other sanctioned persons by searching relevant databases and watch lists. A Foreign Nationals Terrorist Sanctions List Search (OFAC/ CLFST & OSFI) or “Prohibited Parties Check” helps identify individuals whom are not allowed to do business in the U.S. or deemed to be a threat by the Federal government.
The Office of Foreign Asset and Control (OFAC) maintains a database of all persons and companies that are banned from entry or conducting business in the United States. This includes terrorists, international narcotics traffickers, and those engaged in activities related to weapon distribution.
OFAC administers a number of U.S. economic sanctions and embargoes that target geographic regions and governments. Some programs are comprehensive in nature, block the government, and include broad-based trade restrictions, while others target specific individuals and entities.
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 Consolidated Sanctions List. This consolidated list includes the Non-SDN, Palestinian Legislative Council List “NS-PLC List,” the Part 561 List, the Non-SDN Iran Sanctions Act List “NS-ISA List,” the Foreign Sanctions Evaders List “FSE List,” the Sectoral Sanctions Identifications List “SSI List,” and the List of Persons Identified as Blocked Solely Pursuant to Executive Order 13599 “the 13599 List.”
