The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:
1. Create Item in an NIR-required ICC
2. Finish item creation
3. Create NIR
4. Click on Submit
Error appears, but NIR is still created. When you open the NIR, it is in Draft status - Submit not found in actions list of values.
The NIR is stuck.
