IPA backs programmatic project that benefits agencies


TAG TrustNet will improve the transactional transparency and accountability of digital media procurement.


The IPA has expressed its full support for TAG TrustNet, a new phase of TAG’s ongoing Distributed Ledger Technology (DLT) initiative, to improve the transactional transparency and accountability of digital media procurement.

The project uses blockchain technology, specifically DLT, to establish a common “truth” on metrics to improve the efficiency of reporting for all stakeholders, including the verification of TAG certification status for inventory.


"While driving efficiencies, this initiative will also enable greater transparency in line with real, demanding regulatory requirements in a way that will allow us to regain the trust we’ve lost due to the evolving proliferation in this area."


Nigel Vaz, IPA President and CEO of Publicis Sapient
