The authors investigate the concept of norm compliance in Business Process Modeling. In particular, they propose an extension of Formal Contract Logic (FCL), a combination of defeasible logic and a logic of violation, with a richer deontic language capable of capture many different facets of normative requirements. The resulting logic, called Process Compliance Logic (PCL), is able to capture both semantic compliance and structural compliance. This paper focuses on structural compliance that is they show how PCL can capture obligations concerning the structure of a business process.
