You can have codes without being in MITA, as long as you meet the criteria for codes (which include having published schedules, issue standard accountable documents, etc). As long as you retain the codes, you can stay in SIS and settle on a bilateral basis.
In addition, if you are not in ICH it means that you will see nothing related to ICH, nor will any ICH members route any transactions to you through the SMI=I. Everything would be SMI=B. IS-Web would show all invoice details for you exactly as before, but settlement would only be done via bilateral bank transfer.
Hope that clarifies.

Conversation: MITA? ICH? SIS?
Subject: MITA? ICH? SIS?
We have some questions here, please check and advise.
Here’s our situation.
We JINAIR are going to be withdrawn ICH membership soon because of our internal reason.
The reason is this
Jin Air Co. Ltd LJ/718/- is a party to MITA since 16/Dec/2009. Since joining date LJ/718/- had no interline activity therefore no reason to continue with MITA Participation.
So our MITA participation will be withdrawn.
But, one of the requirements of a Non-IATA Member airline(LJ is non-IATA member) being able to join and maintain ICH participation is that we actually has to be a MITA participant.
So ICH membership will be lost either.
Q1. Does SIS sign up also need MITA participation first?
As I know about SIS,
any airline is eligible to join SIS, whether or not they are a member of a clearing house, and non-airlines may also join SIS provided that they do business with airlines.
If so, next question
We JINAIR will be lost ICH membership but if we sign up SIS then we can use IS-WEB instead right?
As I know, after Go-live, IS-WEB will show all corresponding transactions even the claim is issued by ICH.
Is this correct?
What I mean is,
If I claim A invoice by ICH on Period 01 OCT then does this invoice(or amount) also shown in IS-WEB?
