IAB Europe Transparency and Consent Framework
In November 2017, IAB Europe and a cross-section of the publishing, and advertising industry announced a new Transparency & Consent Framework to help publishers, advertisers, and technology companies comply with key elements of GDPR. The Framework will give the publishing, and advertising industries a common language with which to communicate consumer consent for the delivery of relevant online advertising and content. IAB Tech Lab is charged with the technical governance of these specifications.
Specifications published here support the Framework, including the following v1.1 final specifications that are ready for industry adoption:
- Consent string and vendor list formats v1.1 Final
- Mobile In-App CMP API v1.0
