JICWEBS www.jicwebs.org is the Joint Industry Committee for Web Standards. This industry‐owned organisation meets 4 times a year to ensure independent development and ownership of standards for underpinning online ad trading. This provides credibility, comparability and transparency, which is particularly important for advertisers who then have a universally recognised set of principles to work with. ABC audits digital media and systems to these industry‐agreed standards and verifies that the principles have been applied.
Representatives on JICWEBS encompass all areas of the digital industry including advertisers, agencies, media owners and technology providers from the following trade bodies: IPA, IPA digital, ISBA, AOP, IAB, NS, NPA.
Many of the JICWEBS standard definitions have been adopted by all IFABC (International Federation of Audit Bureaux of Circulations, www.ifabc.org) members. The IFABC World Wide Web Standards Group reviews these global metrics every year to make sure they remain relevant to the people spending money on online advertising
