When you do normalize-space() on a node set, then it only looks at the
*first* node in that node set.  So in the above you select the BCID
attributes, then choose the first one, and concatenate it with a comma
to look in the search string.

Instead, you should test whether there are *any* SC elements whose
BCID attribute, concatenated with a comma, is contained in the
$searchList with:

  SC[contains($searchList, concat(normalize-space(@BCID), ','))]
