Italian term or phrase: ambito d\'impiego
Prima di confermare l'acquisto verifica *nell'ambito d'impiego* (se presente) che non vi siano note o indicazioni particolari che ne impediscano l'installazione.

This is part of an instruction manual for the installation of replacement wheels (for performance or asesthetic reasons) on automobiles. The target audience is global.

According to Google: "L’ambito di impiego” è un documento che contiene tutte le informazioni dettagliate circa la vettura e le varie motorizzazioni previste, le misure dello pneumatico, gli elementi di fissaggio e tutte quelle condizioni e note necessarie per istallare correttamente la ruota omologata a cui si riferisce e che è reso disponibile dal costruttore del sistema ruota omologato.--

In the US, the NHTSA issues safety standards and the SAE (Society of Automotive Engineering) and international organizations establish performance standards. But the rules governing what is 'street legal' vary by state and, of course, are different in Europe and other parts of the world.

Does anyone know if there is an English language equivalent for 'ambito d'impiego'? I have the impression each manufacturer creates their own version, based on the regulations applicable to obtaining homologation of the particular product in question. But, that could be an assumption that proves the adage.
Thanks in advance for your help.

Methinks to make sure the customer buys the right wheels/tyres for the conditions they'll be using the vehicle in, such as HD rims, off-road tyres for a raid jeep, low profile rims and tyres for sportscar.
