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 Q1 2020, on the 31March, 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.
In the run up to the switch over deadline, IAB Europe will be running a series of workshops to offer full support and guidance to CMPs and Vendors. The workshops will commence in January 2020 and will run to the switch over deadline. Hosted in a 1 hour-long webinar format, all interested participants will be able to dial in and hear from TCF experts on what is needed to fully implement TCF v2.0. All webinars will feature Q&A sessions and will be recorded. The workshops will cover everything from the CMP user interface under TCF v2.0 to Policy and technical specifications differences from TCF v1.0.
Please see below for details on upcoming workshops including registration links. Full details on the sessions will be provided closer to the workshop date.
