WG NAME (and any acronym or abbreviation of the name):

Consent Management Solutions WG (Consent Management WG)

PURPOSE:

Consent Management Solutions are used to manage the full lifecycle of an individual’s consent for the processing of their personal data. That consent needs to be: freely given, specific, informed and unambiguous.

The purpose of the Consent Management Solutions WG is to produce a series of Recommendations and Technical Specifications. The Consent Management Solutions WG will gather common current practices from organizations that have implemented consent management solutions; to gather requirements from jurisdictional regulations related to consent management; to develop consensus requirements based on the best current practices to enable businesses to implement best practice, and to support the establishment of a Kantara conformity assessment scheme leading towards supplier declaration or certification against the requirements.

Due to impending deadlines for GDPR, PSD2 and other existing regulations in multiple jurisdictions, there is a market need for guidance and possibly product/service certification for compliant consent management solutions.

SCOPE:

The initial scope of the WG is:

to publish a Kantara Recommendation “Consent Management Solutions – Best Current Practices” which is to contain consensus best current practices as derived from the sources;

Once the initial scope is complete, additional publications will be scoped for production.
