For more information on the Trustworthy Accountability Group (TAG) Quality Assurance Guidelines, which were created by the IAB and subsequently transferred to TAG, click here.
Certification can be obtained at two different tiers: self-certification and independent validation certification. A company has the option to choose one tier or the other.
