Quote " "CE" really doesn't mean much here tho."
To be honest I don't think it really means too much here either! It is mandatory for marketing, but is not, as often thought, an independant certification. It is merely a manufacturers declaration of compliance with EU standards, the identity and scope of which it is sometimes difficult to ascertain.
Hence for reputable major European based manufacturers it can be taken at face value, and these will often carry additional certifications. For some imports or items of unclear origin however I think it means little.
