DoubleVerify Japan Joins Japan Advertisers Association’s Web Advertising Bureau (JAA/WAB) and the Japan Interactive Advertising Association (JIAA)

The company will help launch the "Internet Advertising Soundness Promotion Project" to promote wider adoption of ad verification

TOKYO, 23rd Jun 2020DoubleVerify (“DV”), a leading software platform for digital media measurement, data and analytics today announced that the company is now a member of Japan Advertisers Association’s Web Advertising Bureau (JAA/WAB), and the Japan Interactive Advertising Association (JIAA). 

In addition, DoubleVerify announced that it will take part in the launch of the “Internet Advertising Soundness Promotion Project” (chaired by Mr. Shuji Kobayashi, JAA/WAB) along with Japan Advertisers Association’s Web Advertising Bureau (JAA/WAB) and five other domestic ad verification providers. 

There has been growing discussion within Japan’s digital advertising industry about the need for ad verification since the publication of the World Federation of Advertisers’ (WFA) Global Media Charter. However, clear standards have yet to be fully established. DV believes that its advanced verification technology, solutions, and expertise will accelerate progress in the Japanese digital ad market and enable a fully transparent digital advertising ecosystem. Active membership in these leading industry associations lets DV Japan provide meaningful contributions to their efforts – with a focus on media quality and performance in the region. 

“We are thrilled to take part in this important project with key industry leaders – helping to build a better industry together in Japan,” said Takashi Takeda, Country Manager, DoubleVerify Japan. 

“As reported in various media, consumers have become increasingly distrustful of digital advertising these days”, said the WAB. “JAA issued an Advertiser Declaration last year and continues discussions with industry partners to ensure the reliability of digital advertising. However, many of the partners involved in the advertising activities, including advertisers, have not yet been able to fully promote the efforts to improve the health of digital advertising. The “Internet Advertising Soundness Promotion Project” will give us the platform to widely educate advertisers and all partners involved in their advertising activities about the importance of adopting ad verification mechanisms, such as correctly measuring the impairment of advertising value.”
