Most works on norms have investigated how norms are regulated using institutional mechanisms. Very few works have focused
on how an agent may infer the norms of a society without the norm being explicitly given to the agent. This paper describes
how an agent can make use of the proposed norm identification architecture to identify norms. This paper explains how an agent
using this architecture identifies one type of norm, an obligation norm. To this end, the paper proposes an Obligation Norm
Inference (ONI) algorithm which makes use of association rule mining approach to identify obligation norms.
