Definition of "worldwide" in view of IATF 16949 and Product conformity

#1
Hi,
as some of customers in RFQ are using word "worldwide" as destination country, I was wonder if someone ever found the definition of "worldwide".
During one of the training I was told that such definition (list of countries) exist (kba.de) but so far I couldn't find it.
Someone ever found it maybe and can share the link?

I do not know definition of worldwide.
For me it is clear indication, that your customer considers application of this product to every market, he works on and his customer sells cars..
You have to recognize what regulations (legal requirements) are applicable to your product on every market.
It sounds impossible, so limit your research to key countries, you would expect as source of toughest regulations.
If no risk there, so maybe there would be no risk anywhere.

In my experience related to warranty parts, I have such a case where some parts were broken in Israel.
When I've asked for support my HQ, they told me "this parts were designated for Europe" and Europe did not meant for them Israel.
They were right but if you watch regularly "Eurovision" song contest you know, that even Australia is also part of Europe. :vfunny:
Seriously, Israel exploitation conditions were much more demanding, that Germany, France or even Greece and part was designed to hold it.
And it should be recognized during quotation stage and clarified to customer, what may or may not work.

It is not a case for my costumers to deliver worldwide.
I don't believe it would be changing often as the list of countries I was told, were "the biggest players" the idea behind is, that if you fulfil regulation of those countries, you are fulfill "Worldwide" regulation.
And there should be such countries list on the kba.de but so far I have no luck to find it.
So I hopped that maybe someone from here could help.
