The Google-Certified Consent Management Platform We Recommend Works with WordPress Too

Share the knowledge

If you use certain Google publishing products you probably saw the new warning that soon you must use a Google-certified consent management platform (CMP). (But if you’re looking for a list of Google-certified consent management platforms, good luck.) The warning reads “Later this year, Google will require all publishers serving ads to EEA and UK users to use a Google-certified Consent Management Platform (CMP). You can use any Google-certified CMP for this purpose, including Google’s own consent management solution. If you are interested in using Google’s consent management solution, start by setting up your GDPR message.”

Note that the EEA consists of all EU countries plus Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway, and these three countries also fall within the requirements and regulations of GDPR; countries in the UK are required to follow the UK GDPR.

Also note that there are several states in the United States now that have passed and enacted their own data privacy laws which require consent – as well as being able to prove that consent – including Colorado, California, Virginia, Utah, Connecticut, Texas, Tennessee, Indiana, Montana, and Iowa. And with this many already online or in the pipeline, you know that more states will fall into line behind them.

We say “good luck” looking for the list of Google-certified CMPs because even the link to “list of Google-certified Consent Management Platforms” on Google’s own page goes nowhere.
