Special approval of FMEA for product safety

What is the difference between special approval for FMEA and special approval of FMEA in my factory? We made FMEA for each product is those FMEAs enough for the clause of product safety 4.4.1.2?

Answer:

Special approval means that your FMEA assessment is approved your customer. This is, of course if the customer requires from your organization to send them FMEAs for the approval. The standard itself says "if applicable" for this requirement, so if the customer doesn't require to approve your FEMAs, your current FMEAs are sufficient to meet the standard requirements.
