    In this paper we study the replacement transformation for Constraint Logic Programming modules. We define new applicabihty conditions which guarantee the correctness of the operation also wrt module¿s composition: under this conditions, the original and the transformed modules have the same observable properties also when they are composed with other modules. Furthermore, the applicability y conditions are uot bound to a specific notion of observable. Here we consider three distinct such notions: two of them are operational and are based on the computed constraints; the third one is the algebraic one based on the least model. We show that our transformation method can be applied in any of these distinct contexts, thus providing a parametric approach.
