Call for Participation in Consent on the Web Community Group

The Consent on the Web Community Group has been launched:

The mission of this group is to improve the experience of consent on the web while ensuring it remains adherent to relevant standards and laws. For this, the group will: (i) provide a space for people and stakeholders to come together (ii) highlight and analyse issues and problems about consent on the web (iii) propose and develop solutions.

Some concrete areas for the working of this group are: (a) developing solutions using legal, or technical, or a combination of both; (b) documenting and achieving legal compliance; (c) improving the user experience; and (d) utilising existing and developing new web standards for consent.

In order to join the group, you will need a W3C account. Please note, however, that W3C Membership is not required to join a Community Group.

This is a community initiative. This group was originally proposed on 2020-08-26 by Harshvardhan J. Pandit. The following people supported its creation: Harshvardhan J. Pandit, Anelia Anelia Kurteva, Anna Fensel, Dave Fortney, Jonathan Vokes. W3C’s hosting of this group does not imply endorsement of the activities.

The group must now choose a chair. Read more about how to get started in a new group and good practice for running a group.

We invite you to share news of this new group in social media and other channels.

If you believe that there is an issue with this group that requires the attention of the W3C staff, please email us at

Thank you,
W3C Community Development Team
