Requirements defined in the Technical Rules as valid for one season only are:
- Pattern Dances for Novice International Competitions,
- music requirements for Pattern Dances for International Competitions,
- rhythms or themes, Required Elements (including Key Points and Key Point Features for Pattern Dance Elements and Partial Step Sequence) and guidelines for Short Dance,

The annual requirements for season 2017/18 were included in Communication 2076
