Types of Linkages between Business Processes and Regulations

Part of the Advances in Intelligent Systems and Computing book series (AISC, volume 353)


One of the essential issues in compliance management is to ensure that the business processes function according to regulations which are relevant in a particular business context. Intuitively it requires establishment of explicit relationships or linkages between the regulations and business process model elements. The analysis of compliance handling approaches shows that currently this linkage is mainly considered indirectly rather than directly. This lets to assume that, for more efficient compliance management, there is a need to extend existing or to design new approaches that can effectively handle direct linkages between business processes and regulations.
