Abstract

Several XML-based standards have been proposed for describing rules (RuleML, RIF, SWRL, SBVR, etc.), or specific dialects (RuleML family [1,2]). In 2009, the Legal Knowledge Interchange Format (LKIF [4]) was proposed to extend rule languages to account for the specifics of the legal domain and to manage legal resources. To further develop the representation of the law in XML-based standards, the OASIS Legal- RuleML TC held its first technical meeting on 19 January 2012 [9]. The objective of the TC is to extend the RuleML family with features specific to the formalisation of norms, guidelines, policies, and legal reasoning [3].
