8 World-Class Care…Anytime, Anywhere NEC REMOVAL NAVPERS 1221/6 Official record reveals member is no longer qualified to retain NEC. IDC has a documented psychological problem, substance abuse incident, or a substantiated Family Advocacy abuse case where treatment is refused or member is designated not eligible for treatment which adversely reflects on the member’s integrity, professional conduct or moral character. Note: Such deviations from acceptable behavior or strong moral character may warrant (if retained) removal of the member from a patient care environment, removal of NECs, and forced conversion to an appropriate rating. 8

9 World-Class Care…Anytime, Anywhere NEC REMOVAL NEC removal “for cause” is recommended and supported by the CO or a command requested NEC removal subsequent to documented incompetency. An IDC fails to maintain “certification” and the IDC is not assigned/utilized as an IDC for three or more years and there is no opportunity for reassignment to and IDC billet at sea. An IDC receives disciplinary action by military or civilian authorities for conduct which reflects adversely upon the member’s reliability, integrity, trustworthiness, or moral character. 9
