(b) In assessing capacity penalties incurred under the National Market System Plans:

(2) FINRA will notify each ADF Trading Center as soon as possible after it has exceeded its projections; and
(3) The ADF Trading Center will be invoiced for the penalties once FINRA has received its invoice from the SIP(s).
(c) For purposes of Rule 7583:
(1) the term "ADF Trading Center," shall have the same meaning as defined in Rule 6220; and
(2) the term "National Market System Data Plans" means the Consolidated Tape Association Plan, the Consolidated Quotation Plan, and the Unlisted Trading Privileges Plan.
