I noticed from listening to Amsterdam ATC recently, that most of the widebody jets never use, or are referred to as heavy. Does the term heavy only get used in the USA? And do plans only use the term heavy at certain altitudes, when flying in US airspace?

I was watching some ops in Geneva this weekend. I always assumed that there was a period of at least 2 minutes between a heavy and a lighter, single-aisle aircraft. But I saw Embraers and other small planes on the runway only 30 seconds to 1 minute after a 777, 747 and an A300-600 come through. What are the rules?
