Quite simple. The best known and respected EMC compliance standard is CE 
marking - which is European. So marking something 'CE' in North America is 
essentially meaningless - but can fool most of the people most of the time.

(Incidentally, CE marking covers much more than just EMC compliance. It is 
unfortunately not unknown for some manufacturers selling into Europe to pull 
the same trick - which is illegal.)
