(a) For purposes of applying any provision of the Rule 7000B Series that reflects a charge assessed, or credit provided, by the NASD/Nasdaq Trade Reporting Facility, a member may request that the NASD/Nasdaq Trade Reporting Facility aggregate its activity with the activity of its affiliates. A member requesting aggregation of affiliate activity shall be required to certify to NASD the affiliate status of entities whose activity it seeks to aggregate prior to receiving approval for aggregation, and shall be required to inform NASD immediately of any event that causes an entity to cease to be an affiliate. In addition, NASD reserves the right to request information to verify the affiliate status of an entity.
(b) For purposes of applying any provision of the Rule 7000B Series that reflects a charge assessed, or credit provided, by the NASD/Nasdaq Trade Reporting Facility, references to an entity (including references to a "member," a "participant," or a "Trade Reporting Facility Participant") shall be deemed to include the entity and its affiliates that have been approved for aggregation.

(3) A "parent" shall mean an entity that directly or indirectly owns 100% of the voting stock or comparable ownership interest of a member.
