As no parties submitted comments or requested a hearing, the Department continues to find that Qingshui is the successor-in-interest to Cangshan Qingshui for these final results. DATES: Effective Date: July 7, 2015. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Hilary E. Sadler, Esq., AD/CVD Operations, Office VII, Enforcement and Compliance, International Trade Administration, U.S. Department of Commerce, 14th Street and Constitution Avenue NW., Washington, DC 20230; telephone: (202) 482–4340. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background Based on a request from Qingshui, the Department initiated a CCR on Qingshui to determine whether it is the successorin-interest to Cangshan Qingshui, for purposes of determining antidumping duties due as a result of the Order. The Department preliminarily determined that Qingshui is the successor-ininterest to Cangshan Qingshui and is entitled to its cash deposit rate with respect to entries of merchandise subject to the AD order on fresh garlic from the PRC.3 The Department provided interested parties 30 days from the date of publication of the preliminary results to submit comments or request a public hearing in accordance with 19 CFR 351.309(c)(1)(ii). No parties submitted comments or requests for a public hearing. tkelley on DSK3SPTVN1PROD with NOTICES Scope of the Order The products covered by the order are all grades of garlic, whole or separated into constituent cloves, whether or not peeled, fresh, chilled, frozen, water or other neutral substance, but not prepared or preserved by the addition of other ingredients or heat processing. The differences between grades are based on color, size, sheathing, and level of decay. The scope of the order does not include the following: (a) Garlic that has been mechanically harvested and that is primarily, but not exclusively, destined for non-fresh use; or (b) garlic that has been specially prepared and cultivated prior to planting and then harvested and otherwise prepared for use as seed. The subject merchandise is used principally as a food product and for seasoning. The subject garlic is currently classifiable under subheadings: 0703.20.0000, 0703.20.0010, 0703.20.0015, 0703.20.0020, 0703.20.0090, 0710.80.7060, 0710.80.9750, 0711.90.6000, 0711.90.6500, 3 See Preliminary Results.

Although the HTSUS subheadings are provided for convenience and customs purposes, our written description of the scope of the order is dispositive. In order to be excluded from the order, garlic entered under the HTSUS subheadings listed above that is (1) mechanically harvested and primarily, but not exclusively, destined for nonfresh use or (2) specially prepared and cultivated prior to planting and then harvested and otherwise prepared for use as seed must be accompanied by declarations to U.S. Customs and Border Protection to that effect. Final Results of Changed Circumstances Review Instructions to U.S. Customs and Border Protection As a result of this determination, the Department finds that Qingshui is entitled to the cash deposit rate previously assigned to Cangshan Qingshui as determined in the new shipper review of Cangshan Qingshui.4 Consequently, the Department will instruct U.S. Customs and Border Protection to collect estimated antidumping duties for all shipments of subject merchandise produced and/or exported by Qingshui, and entered, or withdrawn from warehouse, for consumption on or after the publication date of this notice in the Federal Register at $3.06 per kilogram, which is the current antidumping duty cash deposit rate for Cangshan Qingshui.5 This cash deposit requirement shall remain in effect until further notice.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The National Institute of Standards and 
Technology (NIST) is one of our Nation's oldest Federal laboratories 
(for more information, visit www.nist.gov). As a bureau in the 
Department of Commerce, the NIST mission is to promote U.S. innovation 
and industrial competitiveness by advancing measurement science, 
standards, and technology in ways that enhance economic security and 
improve our quality of life. From early electrical measurement research

world-class research, often in close collaboration with industry, which 
advances the nation's technology infrastructure and helps U.S. 
companies continually improve products and services.
    NIST publishes this notice to seek comments on the NIST Plan for 
Providing Public Access to the Results of Federally Funded Research 
(NIST Public Access Plan), posted at www.nist.gov/data. The NIST Public 
Access Plan documents NIST's plan to implement new responsibilities and 
procedures to manage the public access of scientific data and 
publications. Comments received on the NIST Public Access Plan will 
inform NIST as it revises its directives that implement the Plan.
    NIST is taking steps to make its scientific data and publications 
more readily available and accessible by the public, as directed in 
several recent White House memoranda, Office of Management and Budget 
Memoranda M-10-06, Open Government Directive, and M-13-13, Open Data 
Policy--Managing Information as an Asset; and the February 22, 2013, 
Office of Science and Technology Policy Memorandum, Increasing Access 
to the Results of Federally Funded Scientific Research.
    The NIST Public Access Plan applies to the results of research 
funded wholly or in part by NIST, presented in peer-reviewed scholarly 
publications and as research data. Research data means the recorded 
factual material commonly accepted in the scientific community as 
necessary to validate research findings, but not any of the following: 
preliminary analyses,\1\ drafts of scientific papers, plans for future 
research, peer reviews, or communications with colleagues. This 
``recorded'' material excludes physical objects (e.g., laboratory 
samples). Research data does not include: Trade secrets, commercial 
information, materials necessary to be held confidential by a 
researcher until they are published, or similar information which is 
protected under law; and personnel and medical information and similar 
information the disclosure of which would constitute a clearly 
unwarranted invasion of personal privacy, such as information that 
could be used to identify a particular person in a research study.\2\
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

    \1\ For purposes of NIST's Public Access Plan, NIST considers 
the contents of laboratory notebooks to be preliminary analyses.
    \2\ For purposes of this notice, NIST is adopting the definition 
of ``research data'' provided in 2 CFR 200.315(e)(3). http://www.gpo.gov/fdsys/pkg/CFR-2014-title2-vol1/pdf/CFR-2014-title2-vol1-sec200-315.pdf.

    Putting new plans in place to manage public access to NIST data and 
publications stands to significantly benefit the public and NIST by 
ensuring that the integrity of NIST data and publications is maintained 
throughout their life cycles, and by increasing the visibility of NIST 
measurements, standards, technology, and research activities. 
Stakeholder consultation is a critical step in the development of 
NIST's plan for managing public access to research results.
    In May 2013, NIST co-sponsored two public comment meetings at the 
National Academy of Sciences on providing public access to federally 
supported R&D data and publications.\3\ The stakeholder input gathered 
at these public meetings and information from ongoing dialogue with 
other Federal agencies were considered in the development of the NIST 
Public Access Plan. NIST invites respondents to comment on the 
following questions that pertain to the implementation of its public 
access policy:

Supported R&D Publications Workshop, held May 14-15, 2013, and 
Public Comment Meeting Concerning Public Access to Federally 
Supported R&D Data Workshop, held May 16-17, 2013, at the National 
Academy of Sciences.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------

     What are the best practices (from academia, industry, and 
other stakeholder communities) in managing public access of data?
     What are the biggest challenges to implementing a public 
access policy, and how can these challenges be addressed?
     What criteria could the NIST laboratories use in 
prioritizing the public release of datasets?
     How can NIST improve its plan to provide greater public 
access to NIST data?
    All comments must be received in accordance with the DATES section 
of the notice above.
