    I hereby propose to include the CE-Mark in the Unicode standard.

    The glyph outlines of the CE Mark are defined by rules of the European Union.

    Originally, the CE Mark is only a symbol that is used on products
    to mark them as, in a few words, "conforming to certain standards".
    The detailed "declaration of conformity" shipped with the product as a document
    does not really need the CE Mark to be written in the glyph form of the official CE Mark.

    In the meantime, however, the CE mark in its specified glyph form is widely
    used in the Declaration of Conformity itself or other textual contexts to emphasize it.
    Thus it is no longer used as a symbol only, but also as part of the text.

    There are many examples in the internet where the CE mark is used in
    textual context.
    Some examples are (really random selection):

    If you want more examples, take one of the European translations for
    "Declaration of conformity" and search the web:
    Declaración de conformidad
    Declaração de conformidade
    Dichiarazione di conformità
    Försäkran om överensstämmelse
    Δήλωση συμβατότητας
    Uygunluk beyan

    With best regards,
