CE stands for Conformité Européenne, French for "European Conformity". The CE # identifies the registration ID of the notified body who certified the phone according to CE regulations. The manufacturer can also certified its own phone.

If your phone is certified to be sold in EU (European Union), you can find the CE # of your phone usually on the back cover. For example, on the back cover of a Samsung Galaxy phone.

CE marking consists of 3 parts, CE logo, notified body code and alert symbol, as shown below:

CE 0168 !⃝

The alert symbol !⃝ indicates that the phone is Class II device and does not follow "harmonized frequency bands" restrictions in EU.

Here are some examples of FCC ID #s:

"CE 0168 !⃝" - Certified by TUV SUD BABT and a Class II device
"CE 0682 !⃝" - Certified by Cetecom ICT Services and a Class II device
