Compliance has become an important driver in business process management, as it requires profound and traceable changes of the processes. Besides the increasing demand for security, privacy and trust, compliance also needs consistent integration and management of process structures related to compliance. The authors use the notion of compliance fragments to refer to such structures. In this paper, they discuss the challenges of managing compliance fragments in business processes. Extraction, integration, highlighting and hiding of compliance fragments represent the challenges they refer to. For extraction and hiding of compliance fragments they present an implementation for the process execution language BPEL, based on process view transformation concepts.
