Hello: Yes, it is my question. The NTIO (Netherlands Trade & Investment Office) told me that. So I would like to know if the newest regulations are receive by aphis and release to the inspector. (The lady in NTIO told me that while the quarantine requirement changes, the office will send the newest regulations back to Netherlands and it's takes time to process and evaluating and arrive at the inspector office. And it should be an international process standards) Thanks, I should try to directly contact with APHIS. And hope them could understand what I want to express in English.
