REEBOK RECEIVES RECOGNITION AWARD FROM U.S. CUSTOMS SERVICE

 REEBOK RECEIVES RECOGNITION AWARD FROM U.S. CUSTOMS SERVICE
 BOSTON, Jan. 16 /PRNewswire/ -- Philip W. Spayd, Northeast Regional Commissioner of the U.S. Customs Service, will present a recognition award to Reebok International, Ltd. of Stoughton, Mass., tomorrow for achieving the first paperless Customs entry in the Northeast Region.
 Recently introduced, the U.S. Customs Service's Pre-Importation Review Program expedites the release and processing of importations for the trade community while improving the quality of Customs commercial services. The program allows importers to qualify their imported merchandise for electronic (paperless) entry processing by resolving regulatory issues prior to merchandise importation. Consequently, Customs processing is expedited and assured.
 Reebok was the first company selected to participate in this program in the Northeast, in part, because of its outstanding importing record and willingness to work with Customs officials. Initially limited to complex footwear importations, Reebok's success will unquestionably make it easier for less complex merchandise to qualify for the program. Paperless entry processing is an important step in increasing the productivity of both Reebok's importation processes and Customs' operations. In addition, Reebok's customs broker, Fritz Companies, Inc., played a significant role in achieving the paperless processing through its computer link-up with Customs computer system.
 "With competition in global trade continuing to increase, the Customs Service and the international trade community must be clear in their priorities," said Spayd. "In working with Customs, Reebok has set the benchmark for other companies in the Northeast to follow."
 Spayd invites reporters and photographers to attend the brief ceremony. Specifics are as follows:
 Date and Time: Friday, Jan. 17, 1992 at 10 a.m.
 Place: O'Neill Federal Building
 U.S. Customs Service
 Office of the Regional Commissioner
 10 Causeway St., Room 801
