The final rankings were used in the 2016 Summer Olympics qualification process. Germany, as the winner, qualified directly for the Olympics. Europe also received two entries in the Olympic Qualification Tournaments (OQTs) that were assigned based on these results. These spots went to the two best teams that had not qualified for the Olympics or OQTs by other means. Because France qualified for the Olympics as World Champion and Spain, Croatia, Denmark, and Poland each received OQT berths through their performance in the World Championships, the European berths for the OQTs went to fourth-placed Norway and eighth-placed Sweden.
