trimming allowance
Explanation:
All your terms should be in the following reference:
An additional allowance must be added to the foredge, head and tail
as trimming allowance on bound-in inserts which are maximum product size.
www.newscom.net/southernprint/insertspecs.html

Also see this website for some useful printing terminology (no Nachfalz, though...)
Beschnitt [trim(ming), trim-off] meist Bildteile, die über das Endformat hinaus gedruckt und bei der Endfertigung abgeschnitten werden (verhindert Blitzer am Seitenrand)
http://members.chello.at/wpotocnik/knod web/lexikon/body.htm

"Cropping" is also a printing term that I've often run across. However, I found only one instance of "cropping allowance"
No extra cost for bleed-off advertisements. 1/1 page bleed-off
is 210 x 297 mm + 4 mm cropping allowance
www.elinstallatoren.com/annons/engelsk/eng_priser.htm
but some 16 or so for "trimming allowance", and the Southern Print website seemed to be the most promising.

HTH!

Explanation:
Just to confrim uel's answer -- a Google search with 'foredge + head" + tail + trimming' gives lots of hits. Clearly, in printer's terminology 'head' = top edge, 'tail' = bottom edge and 'foredge' = outside edge of a page.

Cropping is not correct here - it refers to cutting off part of a picture. If a picture is printed 'bled', which means that it extends past the finished dimensions of the page, it will naturally be cropped when the page is trimmed to the final size.
