About Google’s new requirement for publishers
On May 16, Google announced its plans to require all publishers using its products, including Google AdSense, Ad Manager, or AdMob, to use a Google-certified CMP when serving ads to users in the EEA or the UK.
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.” This move is part of Google’s commitment to enhancing user privacy and data protection, aligning with evolving regulatory standards and industry best practices.
Usercentrics’ products are on Google’s list of certified platforms
Usercentrics CMP and Cookiebot CMP are on Google’s list of certified CMPs that successfully integrate with the IAB Europe TCF and support Google Additional Consent Mode, and can therefore be used by publishers when the requirement goes into effect. Usercentrics has secured a coveted spot on this list, solidifying its commitment to empowering publishers with cutting-edge solutions for data privacy compliance.
Usercentrics holds a leading position in enabling compliance with data privacy regulations and has a strong collaborative relationship with Google.
