French term or phrase: marquage "tête de cheval"
This is from a guideline document for nuclear safety inspectors
checking equipment for compliance with various regulations.
One of the criteria they are supposed to check for is:

marquage « tête de cheval » sur l’équipement

I'm not sure if this is an actual horse's head image appearing on the equipment??
Thanks!

Reference information:
Depuis mai 2002, la nouvelle réglementation issue de la directive européenne remplace la réglementation française antérieure, pour l’achat de nouveaux équipements.
Ces équipements doivent porter un marquage CE (qui remplace la tête de cheval) mais aussi un marquage précisant l’identification du fabricant et certaines caractéristiques (volume, pression d’épreuve...).
http://www.dgdr.cnrs.fr/cnps/guides/doc/equipements/reglemen...

Extraits de l’Arrêté du 15 mars 2000
Titre 3 - Inspections périodiques : Article 10, paragraphe 1
suivie de la marque du poinçon de l’Etat dit « à la tête de cheval ». (images of horse's head facing in either direction on page 2)

What is CE Marking (CE Mark)?
CE Marking is the symbol as shown on the top of this page. The letters "CE" are the abbreviation of French phrase "Conformité Européene" which literally means "European Conformity". The term initially used was "EC Mark" and it was officially replaced by "CE Marking" in the Directive 93/68/EEC in 1993. "CE Marking" is now used in all EU official documents.
