Item assignment is failing when BAL_IMPACTS.IMPACT_CATEGORY is used as a condition

Customer is having a requirement to map usages based on the impact category.To fulfill this,implemented item selectors with condition to use impact category as mentioned below.
However this impact category value is not available/populated during rating and item assignment is failing.

1) In the GENERIC SELECTOR based on the event information a lookup is made to derive the impact category(<resultName>Sverige</resultName>).

<genericSelector xmlns:pdc="">
<name>Mobile Roaming Data GS</name>
<description>Generic Selector for Mobile Roaming Data</description>
<pricingProfileName>Convergent Usage</pricingProfileName>
<resultName><CUSTOMER NAME></resultName>

2) This IMPACT_CATEGORY(resultName) is used in item assigment
<fieldValue><CUSTOMER NAME></fieldValue>

3) With this configuration one can see ITEM assignment is going to default instead of above mentioned one. When investigated further,noticed that IMPACT_CATEGORY is not assigned in charge period although this is getting mapped in the final output.

Error in ECS log:

Question:To achieve this any config changes required?
