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.
