SBVR is becoming more and more popular as the meta-model for defining vocabulary based business rules. In an extended form SBVR can be used to declare a whole spectrum of business rules including control-flow and organizational rules. Enforcing the rules of the business in information systems is however not straightforward. SBVR leaves open the gap between defining business rules and actually enforcing them. In this paper, the authors examine if and how business rules can be expressed in SBVR and translated using patterns into a more uniform event mechanism, such that the event handling could provide an integrated enforcement of the defined business rules.
