    Passive voice.

    Dear teachers,
    Could you give me some hint how to turn the sentence entirely to passive voice but still make it sound natural?
    The sentence is:
    The rules, implementation procedure and results of the reform will be presented on the basis of reports, which we have been adding to the electronic catalogue of The Police Files since last year.

    I'll be very grateful for you kind help.

    ... which were added to the catalogue...
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

    Oops - I missed the "since last year" in mine, so you could just say "last year" or use Ray's.
