We address the problem of associating access policies with datasets and how to monitor compliance via policy-carrying data. Our contributions are a formal model in first-order logic inspired by normative multiagent systems to regulate data access, and a computational model for the validation of specific use cases and the verification of policies against criteria. Existing work on access policy identifies roles as a key enabler, with which we concur, but much of the rest focusses on authentication and authorization technology. Our proposal aims to address the normative principles put forward in Berners-Lee's bill of rights for the internet, through human-readable but machine-processable access control policies.
