Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC), Specially Designated Nationals (SDN) List

If your organization does business with individuals or companies outside of the United States or you routinely find yourself hiring non-US applicants, the Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC), Specially Designated Nationals (SDN) List may be a great fit for your employment background screening program. 

This background check service provided by Orange Tree searches the Specially Designated Nationals (SDN) List, maintained by the United States Department of Treasury, Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC). The Specially Designated Nationals (SDN) List includes individuals and companies owned or controlled by, or acting for or on behalf of, targeted countries. It also lists individuals, groups and entities such as terrorists and narcotics traffickers designated under programs that are not country-specific. Individuals and companies included on the list of Specially Designated Nationals (SDN) have had their assets blocked and US persons are generally prohibited from doing business with them, making them important to identify as early as possible.
