According to a recent by Google published notice all partners who use Google’s publisher products – Google AdSense, Ad Manager or AdMob – must from January 16, 2024 Use a Google-certified Consent Management Platform (CMP) that has integrated the Transparency and Consent Framework (TCF) when serving ads to users in the European Economic Area (EEA) or the United Kingdom (UK).
consentmanager was one of the first CMPs to be certified by Google for this new requirement .
Important Announcement: New Google requirement for CMP integrations
This requirement from Google relates to the TCF version 2.2 published by IAB Europe on May 16th. Since 2020, the IAB Europe Transparency and Consent Framework (TCF) has been integrated into all Google ad serving systems. And to enable consistent application of this standardized framework across publishers’ ad ecosystems, Google now requires CMPs to also meet their criteria and be recognized as a Google Certified CMP.
“Later this year, we will require all partners using our publisher products — Google AdSense, Ad Manager, or AdMob — to use a Google certified CMP that integrates with the TCF when serving ads to users in the European Economic Area or the UK. In the coming weeks, we will make available a list of Google certified CMPs that have integrated with the IAB Europe TCF and meet the TCF’s specifications, and we’ll require that our partners use a CMP from that list.“
