    When you register on this site, you are given choice of WTF, ITF, KKW, GTF, etc. aren't you?

    yes indeed you are. I must have asked the question in the wrong way. I meant organisations that govern WTF globally

    I don't know any then, since WTF itself is global.

    Kukkiwon is the only Taekwondo organization that can certify you world wide. There are sub levels to be certified in your own country. For example I just tested for my fourth dan yesterday, and I will be certified with the AAU in America and Kukkiwon in Korea. The AAU will certify my rank here in America and the Kukkiwon will certify me internationally. I do not know of any other organizations like Kukkiwon, and I'm like 99.9% sure no other ones exist.
