Maintaining regulatory compliance is an increasing area of concern for business. Legal Knowledge Management systems that combine repositories of legislation with legal ontologies can support the work of in-house compliance managers. But there are challenges to overcome, of interpreting legal knowledge and mapping that knowledge onto business processes, and developing systems that can adequately handle the complexity with clarity and ease. In this paper we extend the Legal Knowledge Management system Eunomos to deal with alternative interpretations of norms connecting it with Business Process Management systems. Moreover, we propose a workflow involving the different roles in a company, which takes legal interpretation into account in mapping norms and processes, using Eunomos as a support.
