in the states is called 10x, or superfine (which is such a superfine word). you can go even finer with donut sugar (but it's not commercially available). icing sugar contains a small amount of cornstarch to prevent clumping. icing sugar can be found in any grocey or bulk food store next to the regular granulated sugar.
