OFAC has upgraded its sanctions list search tool with fuzzy logic that is more resource-efficient.
The new fuzzy logic is intended to improve the performance of Sanctions List Search and make it more responsive.
As a result of the new logic, users may see differences between search results from the previous version of the tool and the more recent version.

It's important to note that regulators expect Automated Screening Tools (ASTs) to apply fuzzy logic for sanctions screening.
