EU cookie law and a frames-based site

What kind of complications should I expect?

I've been asked by a UK client to make their site cookie-law compliant, but their site uses frames so I'm wondering what this means for implementing a solution?

I intend on using the Silktide Cookie Consent solution as it seems like the simplest to implement (please let me know if there are others). Can anyone let me know if I'll have issues with this or what to look out for please?

I've got to do this for other sites as well, so trying to find the cheapest and easiest solution for my clients.

i'm not sure what the legal answer is but technically the frame will have cookies for that domain not yours.
there is nothing you can do in your parent document to affect or observe the cookie consent compliance of iframed content.
