DVGW – German Technical and Scientific Association for Gas and Water

The DVGW (German Technical and Scientific Association for Gas and Water) has been working for the gas and water industry as an independent and unbiased technical-scientific association since 1859, the objective being to create a basis for the safe and technologically flawless supply of gas and water. It is the central mission of DVGW to advance the gas and water industry in both the technical and technical-scientific context. The Technical Rules issued by the DVGW form the core of this basis. These rules have been devised by the various DVGW bodies and enjoy quasi-legal status, which at the same time ensures the self-administration of the industry.
