How can I know if an electronic article has regulatory approval? eg CE marking for EU

How can I be sure the article (for example small electronics articles such as lights, lamps, projectors etc) have the CE marking/approval as is required for low voltage electronic articles to have the CE approval when sold in the EU. I know EU customs are sure to stop articles not containing such approval. I live in France.

I would think it would be similar with other countries like USA, UK, Canada...each having some type of regulatory approval. Though I don't know exactly what these countries schemes may be. How can I know this? Even more so, when customers ask me?
