if the requirements are really simple, such as those you mentioned in
your OP, a single regex, possibly split into more for clarity, will

/[A-Z]/   "must contain at least one upper case"
/[a-z]/   "must contain at least one lower case"
/[0-9]/   number
/[%.;:,_-]/   symbols 
/^.{8}/   length>=8

Keep an eye out for whitespace - e.g. trailing.
