ANCR Work Group

ANCR (Anchored Notice and Consent Receipt) refers to an anchored record of notice that an individual receiving a notice receipt uses to anchor a data subject relationship to the PII Controllers identity, while a consent receipt is a token that is anchored by the purpose of the consent, and which regulates data flow control and security with the Individual’s verified claims.

All notice, notifications and disclosures require, a record of processing activities and the associated authorities.


ANCR WG - The work here continues the Consent Receipt work at the Kantara Initiative, which has been ongoing since 2013, in the Information and Sharing Work Group, later the Consent and Information Sharing WG, and now the ANCR WG. 

The Consent Receipt v1.1 was published and then included as an Annex, in the ISO/IEC 29184 Online privacy notices and consent standard in 2020.

ISO/IEC 27560 Consent record information structure published August 2023 further incorporates the Consent Receipt. The current ANCR WG effort incorporates and extends this record.
