MISC Supporting documents: mandatory or not?

Hello,
Another question on the supporting documents.
If we understand well the two following extracts from RAM could be contradictory.

From our understanding, the following text states that there is no need for supporting documents as long as mandatory and recommended datas are provided (with exception for misc subcategories).

RAM Chapter A13

Simplified Interline Settlement is a paperless process. All invoices are generated and submitted electronically by the billing airline(s), together with any required supporting documentation. If all Mandatory and Recommended fields are completed in the electronic invoice no supporting documentation need be transmitted except where specified in Attachment X. No paper documents are sent to the billed airline(s).

The second text states that a bilateral agreement between companies is necessary to get rid of supporting docs.

RAM A13 All V2 transmitted by Nicholas COOTE :

Nothing is mentionned regarding the supporting document. We have noted in the minutes that Nick said " No supporting document required when bilaterally agreement or specified and if supporting document is required it will mentionned in the charge code" - We think it should be mentionned explicitly in the RAM. Agree with LH remarks.

So what should we do?

Thanks for your help,

Dear Eric,
 
I am not sure which minutes was quoted in the last paragraph below. However, the quoted text from the RAM A13 in the first paragraph is correct, and the current SIS RAM reflects that.
 
Best regards
