Title; Associated Form; and OMB Number: Record of Arrivals and Departures of Vessels at Marine Terminals; ENG Form 3926; OMB Control Number 0710-0005.
Needs and Uses: The Corps of Engineers uses ENG Form 3926 in conjunction with ENG 3925, 3925B, 3925C, and 3925P as the basic source of input to conduct the Waterborne Commerce Statistics data collection program. The data are used to justify maintenance and improvements of Federal navigation projects and to produce annual tonnage and trip statistics for U.S. waterways and channels.
Affected Public: Business or other for profit.
Annual Burden Hours: 1,800.
Number of Respondents: 300.
Responses per Respondent: 12.
Average Burden per Response: 30 minutes.
The Corps of Engineers uses ENG Form 3926 as a quality control instrument by comparing the data collected on the Corps Vessel Operation report with that collected on ENG Form 3926. The information is voluntarily submitted by the respondents to assist the Waterborne Commerce Statistics Center in the identification of vessel operators who fail to report significant vessel moves and tonnage. For example, this information is invaluable in documenting the movement of petroleum out of Valdez, Alaska, without the information furnished on the ENG Form 3926, millions of tons of petroleum would go unreported each year. Under-reporting results in increased difficulty justifying maintenance of Federal navigation channels.
