We present a knowledge representation framework with an associated run-time support infrastructure that is able to compute, for the benefit of the members of a norm-governed multi-agent system, physically possible and/or permitted actions current at each time, as well as sanctions that should be applied to violations of prohibitions. Experimental results on a benchmark scenario indicate how by distributing norms we can provide run-time support to large scale, norm-governed multi-agent systems.
