The Lyons OFAC web services provide streamlined access to the three most often used watch lists for clients looking to incorporate Office of Foreign Asset Control screening into their own applications. Lyons Commercial Data is a provider of U.S. financial institution data including bank routing numbers and other information critical to transaction processing. The API has simple methods that allow users to submit a name, or country and name, against the following watch lists: Office of Foreign Asset Control Specially Designated Nationals (SDN) list; Bureau of Industry and Security's (BIS) Denied Person's list; Non-SDN list (NS-PLC). The API uses SOAP protocol and responses are formatted in XML.
The following is a list of historical changes that were made to this asset. Typically,
once an API is published on ProgrammableWeb.com, the data we keep about that asset gets updated over the course of its life. For example, the endpoint or home page of the documentation might change.
As a means of enforcing the integrity of our data, every time a non-trivial change is made to the data we keep about an asset,
