RE: Modification of HQ 087993; Polypropylene strip; Strip; Twine, cordage or string; Articles of plastics; Further worked.

Dear Mr. Golla:

On December 20, 1990, this office issued HQ 087993, regarding the classification of "string" under the Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States Annotated (HTSUSA). Since that time, we have determined that the ruling contains an error and should be modified as set out below.

In the paragraph found under the heading "FACTS" we stated that the apparent average width of the merchandise was observed when the string was unfolded. This is incorrect. The measurements set out in HQ 087993 were those of the folded product. Therefore, the words "When unfolded," should be deleted from the paragraph.

This modification will not change the analysis or classification of the imported merchandise.
