Capturing Variability of Law with Nómos 2


Regulatory compliance is increasingly viewed as an essential element of requirements engineering. Laws, but also regulations and policies, frame their provisions through complex structures made of conditions, derogations, exceptions, which together generate a high number of alternative compliance solutions. This paper addresses the problem of modeling, exploring and selecting among alternatives in a variability space defined by laws. Our proposal includes a conceptual modeling framework for laws and reasoning techniques, called Nòmos 2. The proposal is evaluated with a fragment of the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA).
