Scope of Investigation The products covered by this investigation are drill pipe from the PRC. For a full description of the scope of the investigation, see the ‘‘Scope of the Investigation’’ in Appendix I of this notice. Comments on Scope of Investigation During our review of the Petition, we discussed the scope with petitioners to ensure that it is an accurate reflection of the products for which the domestic industry is seeking relief.
