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.
