All comments will become a matter of public record. In this document CBP is soliciting comments concerning the following information collection: Title: Small Vessel Reporting System. OMB Number: 1651–0137. Form Number: None. Abstract: The Small Vessel Reporting System (SVRS) is a program that allows certain participants using small pleasure boats to report their arrival telephonically instead of having to appear in person for inspection by a CBP officer each time they enter the United States. In some cases, a participant may also be asked to report to CBP for an in person inspection upon arrival. Participants may be U.S. citizens, U.S. lawful permanent residents, Canadian citizens, and permanent residents of Canada who are nationals of Visa Waiver Program countries listed in 8 CFR 217.2(a). In addition, participants of one or more Trusted Traveler programs and current Canadian Border Boater Landing Permit (CBP Form I–68) holders may participate in SVRS. In order to register for the SVRS pilot program, participants enter data via the SVRS Web site which collects information such as biographical information and vessel information. Participants will go through the in person CBP inspection process during SVRS registration, and in some cases, upon arrival in the United States. For each voyage, SVRS participants will be required to submit a float plan about their voyage via the SVRS Web site in advance of arrival in the United States. The float plan includes vessel information, listing of all persons on board, estimated dates and times of departure and return, and information on the locations to be visited on the trip. Participants in SVRS can create a float plan for an individual voyage or a template for a float plan that can be used multiple times. SVRS is authorized by 8 U.S.C. 1103, 8 U.S.C. 1225, 8 U.S.C. 1365b, 8 CFR 235.1, 19 U.S.C. 1433, 19 U.S.C. 1498, and 19 CFR 4.2. The SVRS Web site is accessible at: https://svrs.cbp.dhs.gov/. Current Actions: CBP proposes to extend the expiration date of this information collection with a change to the burden hours resulting from updated estimates of the number of participants. There is no change to the information being collected. Type of Review: Extension (with change). Affected Public: Individuals.
