In a separate yearbook

Based on the new Regulations, a separate yearbook was created for office non-commissioned officers, which includes office non-commissioned officers regardless of branch and body. The same applies to contracted non-commissioned officers.
A non-commissioned officer, as well as a contracted non-commissioned officer, will be able to return to their previous employment status at any time if their health problems are remedied. At the same time, upon their return, their seniority is determined based on the date of acquisition of the degree held and not on the date of declassification that was valid until the adoption of the new Regulations. In case of declassification, the time of administration required for a non-commissioned officer to be judged on the rank held will be both the time of the rank held and the time remaining from the previous ranks, with a maximum of three years in addition to the time of administration for the rank held. For the judgment of contract non-commissioned officers at any rank, the total years of service in the army will be taken into account and not only the years of stay at each rank.
