On August 15, the IAB Transparency & Consent Framework (TCF) version 1 will be replaced by the second version (2.0). Organizations leveraging IAB TCF version 1 must make necessary updates for TCF 2.0.

Overview of TCF 2.0  

The IAB TCF 2.0, the industry solution for advertising in compliance with GDPR, was released by IAB Tech Lab and IAB Europe. The TCF 2.0 does not provide any backwards compatibility, and changes in 2.0 are substantial enough that a completely new implementation is required.  

With the list of features, purposes, stacks, new structure for the TC String, and a number of other changes, none of the updates map to anything in previous versions. After an initial transition phase in TCF 2.0 adoption, older versions will be deprecated. The TCF consists of Policies and Technical Specifications that assist all companies in the digital advertising supply chain to meet transparency and user choice requirements related to data processing. 

Similar to TCF version 1, TCF 2.0 is designed to standardize the collection and transmission of user choice and transparency on digital properties so that the digital advertising supply chain can align with GDPR and ePrivacy requirements. However, TCF 2.0 takes better account of consumer’s choice, publisher’s control, and communication with ad tech vendors.
