DMPs are mandatory for all research projects, but commercial partnerships are noted on page 6 of the RDM policy as a reason not to publish data openly. Contractual relationships signed between researchers and commercial partners specifying that the data belongs to the commercial partner, or for other reasons cannot be shared, are a legitimate reason not to publish data.
