French term or phrase: Plébiscités par les principaux fabricants
"Plébisicités par les prinicipaux fabricants, les films xxx de xxx, filiale de xxx, permettent de réaliser des boudins gonflables. Grâce à eux, le kite surfer peut repartir même si l'aile est tombée à l'eau,en toute sécurité et liberté." I don't understand the word "plébiscités" in this context.

vote of confidence


Explanation:
or confidence vote. Eurodicautom gives also "straw vote"!!!

See:

plebiscite plébiscite n. m.


Déf. :
Vote direct du corps électoral qui, à titre exceptionnel, s'exprime par un oui ou par un non, sur l'opportunité d'une mesure - le service militaire forcé en temps de guerre par exemple - qui lui est soumise.


Note :
Le plébiscite pose aux votants la question de confiance. C'est ce qui le distingue du referendum qui demande simplement aux citoyens d'exprimer leur opinion. D'autre part, le referendum peut être prévu par la constitution, la loi ou les statuts, tandis que le plébiscite est une décision faisant suite à une loi spéciale.
Vote de confiance.

Example:
Chicago-based Nike Securities, in a vote of confidence for local entrepreneurs, last year opened the San Diego Growth Trust featuring about 25 different firms, including Qualcomm, Sempra Energy, Jack in the Box, Safeskin, Bank of Commerce and Agouron Pharmaceuticals. No word was available on how that closed trust is performing, but with a batting order like that, it no doubt is knocking them out of the park.
