IAB TCF v2 Transition Timeline

iab tcf v2.0 timeline

The full transition to IAB’s Transparency and Consent Framework version 2.0 is set to be completed soon. Below are some of the changes that have come along with version 2.0 and what’s left of the timeline.

What’s different with IAB’s Transparency and Consent Framework v2.0?

According to CEO Townsend Feehan, TCF 2.0 addresses feedback received on v1 while meeting the needs of each part of the “digital advertising value chain”.

The second iteration of the TCF includes increased functionality, across various aspects of the Framework, for both consumers & publishers.

The latest version of the IAB Framework will also mark a big win in terms of industry traction, as Google has announced that it will integrate TCF 2.0 by end of the first quarter this year.
