I can work with making it longer. But no repeating digits? That's silly!
I work in IT with a high level of admin rights - so I am familiar with what constitutes a challenging password and what is overkill.
On top of it, after having such a bizarrely complex password rule your password change screen recommends using a "birthdate" or "anniversary" - two items that are well known, super-hackable options for passwords.
8 digits is a bit much in my opinion, but especially no repeating characters is quite silly.
Definitely shouldn't be telling people to set passwords to personal dates that are readily available on the web.
