There's no common synonym for CET but the time zone EST5EDT seems to work on

It also works for me on {Free,Net,Open}BSD and BSD/OS.  (Then again,
the NetBSD and BSD/OS machines use that time zone by default anyway,
so it's possible (though unlikely) that they failed to understand that
time zone name and fell back to the default.)

On NetBSD, zoneinfo/northamerica contains the following entry:

# Old names, for S5 users

# Link  LINK-FROM               LINK-TO
Link    America/New_York        EST5EDT

If an unknown time zone name is specified, GNU/Linux, Solaris, HP-UX, Mac OS X and IRIX default to UTC.

I can confirm that EST5EDT works on IRIX and AIX. The Ultrix manual page for ctime and the OSF1 manual page for tzset both mention EST5EDT. Like GNU/Linux, the Hurd uses glibc which supports EST5EDT. Are there any other UNIX implementations that have to be checked?
