GW 350 Technical Rule - Technical 06/2015
This Technical Rule GW 350 in conjunction with DIN EN 12732 applies to the manufacture, testing and Evaluation of welds on steel pipelines and installations which serve to supply the general public with gas within the meaning of the Energy Industry Law (EnWG) or which are part of the associated energy installations on factory premises and in the area of operational gas use and which are to be operated with the gases of the 2nd gas family according to DVGW Standard G 260 or DVGW Standard G 262. It also applies to pipes in operation.For steel pipelines and installations for gases which do not comply with the provisions of the above DVGW standards, this technical rule may be applied mutatis mutandis taking into account the specific properties of the gases and any other existing provisions.

W 130 Technical Rule - Standard 10/2007 -PDF file-
This Code of Practice W 130 serves as a basis for the regeneration of wells and groundwater monitoring points. Ageing processes frequently compromise water well performance, adversely affecting, in turn, a wells service life and economic mode of operation. Well operators therefore face the dual challenge of having to identify the most appropriate regeneration methods for each specific case and being able to evaluate the success of the measures taken. Eventually, a direct capacity increase will ensure the economically efficient operation of a well over the long term only when combined with sustainably successful measures. Any well regeneration measures will, therefore, depend on the nature and scope of ageing and on the constructional condition of the well as well as on groundwater protection requirements. This Code of Practice describes the current requirements on the technically safe and hygienically flawless implementation of well regeneration measures, points out the causes of and explains how to identify well ageing processes, among other things, and offers suggestions on how to delay them. It additionally describes the application options and limits of both mechanical and chemical regeneration procedures and/or methods. By applying this Code of Practice, well operators and contractors alike will be able to record and trace the results achieved by the regeneration measures and evaluate their success, from the planning to the implementation and on to the final phase.

G 260 Technical Rule 09/2021
This Technical Rule G 260 specifies the requirements for the quality of fuel gases used in the supply of the general public with gas and sets the parameters for gas delivery, gas transportation, gas distribution, gas storage, operation of gas plants/systems and gas appliances for commercial and industrial gas applications as well as for development, standardization, and testing. Gases transported in separate pipelines which are not used in the supply of the general public, or are used as energy carrier or resource, and/or are used in special gas appliances are not subject to the scope of this Technical Rule.

G 280 Technical Rule 12/2018
This Technical Rule G 280 applies to all gases covered in DVGW Codes of Practice G 260 and G 262 respectively Standards DIN EN 16723-1 and -2 as well as DIN EN 16726 and all gases used for the supply via pipeline system of the general public and other consumers with a comparable level of safety. When using sulfur-containing odorants, the fact shall be taken into account that the entailed increase of the sulfur content in the gas is undesirable for some applications, such as its use as basic material in the chemical industry. Industrial companies using natural gas exclusively on company premises can forego odorization if the operator utilizes other measures to maintain the industrial gas plant or system’s safety. When switching from one odorant to another, special attention shall be paid to Section 9. The calibration of measuring devices for odorant control requires test gases which are detailed in Section 10.

G 2000 Technical Rule - Standard 05/2017 -PDF file-
This DVGW Standard G 2000 integrates into the existing structure of laws, ordinances and technical rules on the design, construction, operation and maintenance of gas supply networks. It follows the principle of subsidiarity and represents - together with the DVGW Set of Rules and other relevant technical regulations - the minimum technical requirements for the interoperability of and connection to systems of the gas supply network in an objective and unbiased way.The requirements of DVGW Standard G 262 and DVGW Guideline G 292 shall be observed in respect of the injection of renewable gases into public gas supply networks.The overall recognised technical rules continue to apply in full to the design, construction, operation and maintenance of gas supply networks and systems.

The DVGW Set of Rules forms the basis of and sets standards for all activities of the gas and water utility industry sectors, with the main objective being to advance and ensure safety, hygiene and innovations aimed at environmental conservation and consumer protection.

  • it‘s the basis for basic, in-service and advanced training as well as for testing and certifying products, procedures, businesses and individuals.

  • provides legal certainty and a safe environment for action, enhances the efficiency of businesses and helps optimise cost-effective actions.

  • increases product safety, thus augmenting customer confidence while simultaneously reducing product reliability risks.
  • ensures that products meet market requirements, thus increasing demand for these products.

The DVGW Set of Rules in English

The DVGW Set of Rules consists of approximately 650 DVGW rules. An English translation of the most important sets of rules is available for international companies and institutions as well as for users and companies in the gas and water industries of non-German-speaking countries. A module titled “Set of Rules for Well Construction” that discusses the design, construction and operation of wells is available specifically for companies and users specialising in water abstraction. An overview of the English rules can be found in the list on the left.

DVGW – THE authority on setting technical rules

The DVGW counts about 14,000 members and is the technical and scientific association of the gas and water industry. For more than 150 years, the DVGW has been setting the technical standards for the safe and reliable supply of gas and water. Being free from any economic lobbyism as well as being a non-profit-making, neutral association, the DVGW ensures transparent rule-making processes.

Technical expert knowledge ensures safety, hygiene and innovation

More than 280 technical committees staffed with representatives of the gas and water industries collaborate with over 2,600 honorary, independent experts to elaborate the DVGW sets of rules. Their expert knowledge and practical experience guarantee their acknowledgement and acceptance by both the German legislator and their peers. The national bundling of expert knowledge forms the basis for European and international activities. Being represented on the DIN, CEN and ISO standardisation committees, the DVGW has a considerable weight in co-shaping national as well as European and international standards.
