We are pleased to announce that Usercentrics CMP has been certified by Google. As per Google’s announcement on 16th May, publishers using Google AdSense, Ad Manager, or AdMob products for serving ads in the EEA and UK will be required to use only Google-certified Consent Management Platforms (CMPs).


Google’s main objective with this requirement is to establish “a more unified and reliable approach to transparency and consent” and “a more privacy-conscious digital advertising ecosystem.”


Usercentrics has always been at the forefront of digital data privacy compliance and has worked closely with Google. The Usercentrics CMP was among the first certified CMPs when Google launched its CMP Partner Program for Google Consent Mode in September 2022.


We are honored that both our products – Usercentrics CMP and Cookiebot CMP – are included in Google’s list of certified CMPs.


How can publishers comply with Google’s new CMP requirements?


If you’re already a Usercentrics customer, there is no action needed from you for now. Rest assured that you are meeting Google’s new requirements.


If you’re a publisher who has not yet implemented a consent management platform, or if your current CMP provider is neither certified nor has plans to become certified, this is your chance to fully capitalize on the benefits offered by Usercentrics CMP for your business and optimize your monetization efforts.


We are excited to continue strengthening our collaboration with both Google and publishers. For any questions or concerns, book a quick meeting with one of our experts.
