Belgium: IAB Europe withdraws request for suspension of execution of Belgian DPA decision on IAB Europe and TCF

The Interactive Advertising Bureau ('IAB') Europe announced, on 13 May 2022, that it is withdrawing its request for suspension of the execution of the decision issued by the Litigation Chamber of the Belgian Data Protection Authority ('Belgian DPA') on IAB Europe and the Transparency & Consent Framework ('TCF'). In particular, IAB Europe noted that the request for suspension had been submitted as part of the appeal to the Belgian Market Court lodged on 4 March 2022. In addition, IAB Europe outlined that the withdrawal coincides with a confirmation by the Belgian DPA that it will not take a decision on validation of the action plan submitted by IAB Europe until 1 September 2022 at the earliest, by which date the Market Court is expected to have issued a ruling on the appeal.

Furthermore, IAB Europe highlighted that the plan, which IAB Europe was required to produce as part of the Belgian DPA decision, captures how it proposes to deliver on the various orders contained in the decision. Moreover, IAB Europe noted that the plan is currently being evaluated by the Belgian DPA, and IAB Europe will have six months to implement it from the date of validation.
