New regulatory regimes advocate the use of "goal-oriented" regulations that are more flexible during regulatory conversations occurring between the regulators and the regulatees when new regulations are introduced. In that context, long-term "compliance agreements" between regulators and regulatees are needed. Using recent developments of the Measurement Theory, this paper shows that the concept of Measurement Framework (MF) for soft-systems is of particular importance for providing those compliance agreements. We show that with two kinds of goals and softgoals based on MF, one can improve (a) the elicitation of compliance requirements, (b) the structure of the compliance arguments for compliant requirements, and (c) the consistency between actual compliance at run-time and the intentional compliance at early stages of Requirements Engineering.
