CBP Reviewing Report of Diversion of Vessels to U.S. Ports
U.S. Customs and Border Protection is accepting comments through July 21 on the proposed extension without change of CBP Form 26, Report of Diversion. This form is initiated by the vessel owner or agent to notify CBP and request its approval for a vessel to divert while traveling coastwise from a U.S. port to another U.S. port, or for 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.
