Canada has its own Heraldic Authority and New Zealand has a Herald of Arms Extraordinary linked to the College of Arms in London.
I think any citizen of a nation that has Queen Elizabeth as their Head of State can petition the College of Arms or the Lyon Court. I think it is possible for citizens of Republics within the Commonwealth to do the same. I don't think there is any requirement to do so.
Some European or Scandinavian countries just regulate the Arms of the nobility. The rest of their citizens are free assume Arms.
I could, of course, be wrong.
