Discharge Services No Longer Required*****Discharge Services No Longer Required (SNLR) is not a punishment, but neither is it an honourable release and it can impair a rating or other rank’s prospects of employment on return to civilian life. It will also normally prevent re-enlistment. Discharge SNLR is the appropriate method of dispensing with the services of personnel who have tested positive for prohibited/non-prescribed drugs, personnel who have involved themselves in the misuse of drugs (including the possession of drugs paraphernalia), personnel who are subject to administrative action for serious breaches of behavioural standards, or unruly or undisciplined individuals whose retention would be to the detriment of the Service but who have not committed an offence which, either in itself or in association with their past record, would justify a sentence of dismissal.
