High Pressure Gas Pipelines Expert/Expert: Recognition

An expert for high-pressure gas pipelines can be recognised as having the necessary expertise, reliability and independence.

To work as an expert for high-pressure gas pipelines that serve the public supply, you need official recognition.

Experts can be recognised

  • the technical inspection organisations,
  • the public material testing institutes,
  • of the German Association of Gas and Water Experts (DVGW experts).


In accordance with § 12 para. 2 no. 2 GasHDrLtgV, experts who are employed by another technical inspection organization are also approved for high-pressure gas services that do not serve the public supply. However, that technical inspection organisation must have been recognised by the competent body referred to above.

The legal and technical supervision of the State Office for Mining, Energy and Geology (LBEG) is exercised by the Ministry of Economic Affairs, Labour, Transport and Technology of the State of Schleswig-Holstein (MWAVT).

§ 12 Ordinance on High Pressure Gas Pipelines (GasHDrLtgV).
