RC 5B only Choice of SC 44/45/46?

Is RC 5B only Choice of SC 44/45/46?  If not, as long as the SC is 44/45/46, the rejections are FIM rejections, providing no additional information at all.  On the other hand, RC 5B shall not be applicable to RM with SC other than 44/45/46. Therefore, I would suggest to remove 5B.

5B is the most likely reason code to be used for source codes 44/45/46. However, it's not the only one possible. In ACH, you might do an ISC reclaim on FIMs, and thus use reason code 1C.
 
The choice of a reason code is ultimately up to the airline. You might provide other reason codes because they make more sense -- but it's also possible the OAL will reject.

I do not get your point of
"You might provide other reason codes because they make more sense -- but it's also possible the OAL will reject."
Do you mean that OAL can rebill purely for disageeing with the RC we provide?

Yes. The example I provided, of an ISC reclaim on FIMs, is supposedly only allowed in the ACH and not in the ICH. Thus, in an ICH environment, this wouldn't be allowed and you could be rejected by the OAL. Of course, you could have a bilateral agreement with the OAL to accept ISC reclaim on FIMs, even via the ICH.
 
Note -- I'm not a RAM / ACH RAM expert, so this is just a (possibly incorrect) example. Rely not on the specific cases I provide, but the principles. As per the topic description, RAM rule queries should be directed to revenueaccounting@iata.org.

Also, you could have a bilateral (or alliance) agreement to use one of the bilateral codes (e.g. 0A). It's expected that your partners will accept this, but if you send to a non-partner that you haven't agreed on the code with, and they're unaware of the code, I'd expect that they'd reject it.
