                 OMB Number: 1651-0025.
                 Form Number: CBP Form 26.
                 Current Actions: Extension with change of an existing information
                 Type of Review: Extension (with change).

                 Abstract: CBP Form 26, Report of Diversion, is used to track
                vessels traveling coastwise from U.S. ports to other U.S. ports when a
                change occurs in scheduled itineraries. This form is initiated by the
                vessel owner or agent to notify and request approval by CBP for a
                vessel to divert while traveling coastwise from a U.S. port to another
                U.S. port, or a vessel traveling to a foreign port having to divert to
                a U.S. port when a change occurs in the vessel itinerary. CBP Form 26
                collects information such as the name and nationality of the vessel,
                the expected port and date of arrival, and information about any
                related penalty cases, if applicable. This information collection is
                authorized by 46 U.S.C. 60105 and is provided for in 19 CFR 4.91. CBP
                Form 26 is accessible at:
                 Proposed Change: This form is anticipated to be submitted
                electronically as part of the maritime forms automation project through
                the Vessel Entrance and Clearance System (VECS), which will eliminate
                the need for any paper submission of any vessel entrance or clearance
                requirements under the above referenced statutes and regulations. VECS
                will still collect and maintain the same data, but will automate the
                capture of data to reduce or eliminate redundancy with other data
                collected by CBP.
                 Type of Information Collection: CBP Form 26.
                 Estimated Number of Respondents: 1,400.
                 Estimated Number of Annual Responses per Respondent: 2.
                 Estimated Number of Total Annual Responses: 2,800.
                 Estimated Time per Response: 5 minutes.
                 Estimated Total Annual Burden Hours: 233.
