This provocation intends to identify the possible requirements of a transparency model which aims to decompose and analyse automated decision-making systems not by the mechanisms of their operation but rather by the normativity embedded in their behaviour/action. For the effective contestation of automated decisions, essential components of a Rule-based Model (RbM) are briefly described as: i) the data as ‘decisional input’, ii) the ‘normativities’ contained by the system both at the inference and decision (rule- making) level, iii) the context and further implications of the decision, iv) the accountable actors.
