BS 6465-4:2010 Sanitary installations. Code of practice for the provision of public toilets

This part of BS 6465 provides recommendations and guidance intended for those responsible for the surveying, assessing, planning, commissioning, designing, managing and use of public toilets. The recommendations and guidance in this standard are intended to cover public toilet provision for the full range of users and in all locations including towns and cities, rural areas and villages and in relation to main transport routes and termini.

The recommendations in this part of BS 6465 are applicable to new public toilet installations. They are also applicable to the upgrading of existing public toilets. However, it is accepted that it might not be possible to upgrade existing toilets to be in accordance with all the recommendations in this standard, for example for physical or economic reasons.

It is important to note that it is not intended that any public toilet be closed just because it is not entirely in accordance with this standard, as any public toilet provision is considered to be better than none.

This part of BS 6465 gives recommendations on the location, numbers, sitting, design and management of public toilets. It is applicable to the provision of new facilities and to the retention and refurbishment of existing facilities.

This standard is applicable to the following types of public toilet facilities:
• Municipal public on-street toilets
• Off-street publicly available toilets (e.g. in shopping malls)
• Automatic public conveniences (APCs)
• Street urinals
• Facilities for disabled people, from the point of view of scale of provision and location
• Baby changing and ancillary toilet facilities.
