The development of knowledge based systems and decision support systems that provide advice on policy, law and legislation is still in its infancy. Such systems require a degree of expertise to be embedded within them. This paper describes the process of development of a compliance system that interprets a subset of the rules and regulations of the European Community’s Common Agricultural Policy (CAP), which is one of the most contentious pieces of wide-ranging and complex legislation in the world. The CAP legislation in Northern Ireland is complex and farmers find it difficult to interpret. For this reason a knowledge based solution was developed and implemented. The finished system illustrates the usability of high- level object-oriented development tools in the development of flexible knowledge based software.
