IAB Europe, in partnership with IAB Tech Lab, announced on 21 August 2019 the launch of the second iteration of Transparency and Consent Framework (TCF) v2.0. TCF v2.0 continues to support the overall drive of the TCF to increase user transparency and choice, management by digital properties of consent and compliance and industry collaboration that centers on standardisation. Under TCF v2.0, not only can the user give or withhold consent, but they can also exercise their ‘right to object’ to data being processed on the basis of legitimate interests. It also enables greater transparency for the user, through more detailed and more easily understandable descriptions of the purposes of data processing.
At the end of Q2 2020, TCF v1.0 will no longer operate. This is the official deadline for all registered TCF vendors and CMPs to be signed up to and operating TCF v2.0.
On 16 January, IAB Europe hosted a workshop webinar to provide an overview on the main differences in policies between v1.1 and v2.0 of the TCF. This session is for all TCF stakeholders.. This 1 hour information session includes a 30-minute presentation and a 30-minutes Q&A session to answer questions from participants.
