IAB Europe Releases GDPR Transparency & Consent Framework for Public Comment

IAB Europe today released the draft technical specifications for its GDPR Transparency & Consent Framework (“Framework”) for public comment, with IAB Tech Lab now responsible for technical governance.

First announced in November 2017, the Framework is a cross-industry effort to help publishers, technology vendors, and advertisers meet the transparency and user choice requirements (including consent) of the GDPR before the regulation comes into effect on May 25 this year. The Framework is a non-commercial, open source initiative. The final version is scheduled for release mid-April, after continued consultation with publishers, advertisers, and other important industry participants.  And, IAB Tech Lab is charged with the technical governance of these specifications:

• GDPR Transparency & Consent Framework – Consent Manager Provider JS API v1.0
• GDPR Transparency & Consent Framework – Cookie and Vendor List Format v1.0a

Please submit your general feedback on those draft specifications to feedback@advertisingconsent.eu and any technical feedback to transparencyframework@iabtechlab.com by April 8, 2018.
