We provided a class of legitimate memory kernels leading to completely positive trace-preserving dynamical maps. Our construction is based on a simple normalization procedure. Interestingly, when applied to a classical system it gives rise to semi-Markov evolution. Therefore, it may be considered as a quantum version of semi-Markov dynamics which is much more general than Markovian dynamics.
