    Re: The use of where

    I don't really understand your question, but 'where' here means 'in which' and is correctly used.
    USAGE of 'where'

    It was formerly considered incorrect to use where as a substitute for in which after a noun which did not refer to a place or position, but this use has now become acceptable: we now have a situation where/in which no further action is needed
