BM/CM record vs BM/CM Cpn Breakdown record

The BM/CM Cpn Breakdown record (SFI 22 or 23) says its "conditional" for Billing/Credit memos. Please define Conditional. For example - if an Airline is billing a Mean rate Adj via a Billing memo. We understood they could enter the BM and attach a CSV file supporting the billing (i.e. file may have 250 tkts/cpns = $4000 USD). Would this cpn breakdown detail need to be entered or can the attachment support the BM and be billed as a group. How are these validated?

Conditional means it depends on the reason why the BM is being raised - i.e. the reason code used (6A to 09). Mean rate adjustments should be billed as a reason code 8B where a cpn breakdown is required. The billing carrier then adds the additional amount they wish to bill per coupon on the cpn breakdown with a description of the adjustment % rate in the reason breakdown record. On a bilateral basis carriers may find it easier to send the BM as an 8Z "other" and send the coupon mean rate values in an attached CSV file.
