Is there a U.S. version of phytosanitary requirement

Hello Hafsteinn:
Thanks for your reply.

I think I should make my question more clearly.

I had got several time of needs of replacement of phytosanitary certificate while importing from Netherlands.
1. Due to the full botanical name, only genus name is not always acceptable. Because the species in the same genus may still have different quarantine requirements , or even some of them are weed for Taiwan while other species are not.
2. There are always lack of some pest in the additional declarations on the phytosanitary certificate. 
3. If the species are re-export,, the pest status of all the countries they are produced and repacked in will be considered. And re-export phyto is different from export phyto.
4. "Time lag". The inspector could only issue the phytosanitary certificate according to the manual now, even the newest quarantine requirement are just on the way to his office. (The inspector had contact the main office in Wageningen before shipping once time, but I still need to got a replacement finally at that time. )
So I would like to know that if the APHIS have release the newest manual to the inspectors or on the internet for reference.

(Maybe It is just because that my orders are mostly not the usual bulk species such as Tulipa and lilium bulbs from Netherlands to Taiwan.)

Best Regards
