CE-Mark
Explanation:
In all the US-generated documentation I've seen, this has always simply been called the CE-Mark. In fact, CE-Prüfzeichen is a new one on me (I've seen CE-Kennzeichen, CE-Marke, CE-Siegel, etc.)

However, as you can see from one of the references, CE-Mark Certification and CE-Mark Compliance Certification is also being used.

See these and many more references:
The CE mark indicates a product conforms to all safety and other directives/specifications

CE Mark


Explanation:
please see www.roesch.de/Support_Prüfzeichen.htm:

CE-Prüfzeichen: Communautes Europeenes beudeutet nichts anderes als Europäische Gemeinschaft. ... Hersteller, die ihre Produkte in die Europöische Gemeinschaft importieren oder innerhalb der EG produzieren, sind seit dem 01.01.1996 gesetzlich dazu verpflichtet, dieses Zeichen auf ihren Erzeugnissen zu führen.

and then there is an endless number of english websites mentioning the CE Mark
or CE-Mark.

CE mark of conformity


Explanation:
It's a mark of COMPLIANCE WITH LAWS regulating manufacturing methods.
It's NOT a proof of the product being able to do do what it's supposed to do and it's NOT a proof of any test having been performed.
