The service implements a search against records of the U.S. Office of Foreign Asset Compliance (OFAC) to verify customer compliance with regulations on international transfers of currency and other financial assets. Applications can integrate this essential check into financial transaction processing to guard against accidental complicity in prohibited transactions.
API methods support submission of properly formatted name and address queries to the U.S. government database. Returned data include customer listing and status in OFAC records, allowing applications to catch and prevent processing of risky transactions.
The following is a list of how-to and tutorial content that matched your search term. ProgrammableWeb's how-to content comes from two sources; full-blown tutorials that we publish ourselves and other highly relevant tutorials that we find elsewhere on the Web. This list represents on combination of both tutorial types and if you go to ProgrammableWeb's API University, you'll not only be able to find more, they are organized based on your role (API providers or developers who consumes APIs). If you know of a tutorial that would be of interest to the ProgrammableWeb community, we'd like to know about it. Be sure to check our guidelines for making contributions to ProgrammableWeb.
