How OMG UK supports IAB Gold Standard

As part of our continued efforts to uphold the best in class industry standards, Omnicom Media Group UK is delighted to hold the IAB Gold Standard 1.0 and is in the process of re-certifying for the IAB Gold Standard 1.1. 

As an organisation, Omnicom Media Group UK is a great supporter of all the work the IAB does driving even greater industry standards.  

IAB Gold Standard

The Gold Standard initiative is an important framework to define a more robust digital ecosystem, giving clients, publishers, technologies and buyers increased reassurance and certainty throughout the digital media buying process. Our partnership with the IAB forms a key foundation within our digital best practice approach, which delivers market leading solutions for clients.  

We are excited to partner with the IAB to continue to develop the Gold Standard in 2020 and beyond.  

Omnicom Media Group UK supports Coalition for Better Ads 

Omnicom Media Group UK supports the Coalition for Better Ads in its mission to improve the online advertising experience for consumers and promote adoption of the Better Ads Standards. As a result, the lowest ranking ad experiences are not compliant in our creative strategy. 

Omnicom Media Group UK supports the IAB Initiative Ads.txt 

Omnicom Media Group UK supports the IAB initiative ads.txt (also known as Authorized Digital Sellers). Where an ads.txt file is present, Omnicom Media Group UK requires that only publisher inventory from authorized sellers is purchased. In the absence of an ads.txt file Omnicom Media Group UK is actively working with publishers to implement ads.txt on their sites to ensure they support the Gold Standard Initiative.
