IAPMO Seeks Public Input on Manual of Recommended Practice for Toilet Room Design: All Gender / Health, Safety, Privacy and Security

Ontario, Calif.  – The International Association of Plumbing and Mechanical Officials (IAPMO®) is seeking the public’s input for the development of the Manual of Recommended Practice for Toilet Room Design: All Gender / Health, Safety, Privacy and Security.

Created by one of several task groups formed through the IAPMO Technical Services Group, this manual addresses all-gender toilet room design. Those who follow proposed code changes in the plumbing and mechanical sector are aware of recent actions advancing language addressing all-gender restrooms. The Toilet Room Design Task Group’s goal is to develop the Manual of Recommended Practice for Toilet Room Design: All Gender / Health, Safety, Privacy and Security to address restroom design, particularly when it comes to health and safety concerns for all-gender toilet rooms. 

IAPMO encourages the industry to provide your comments to the latest draft, which may be obtained HERE.

Please provide your comments to standards@iapmostandards.org by no later than Dec. 19.

If you have any questions, please contact Christoph Lohr at (909) 731-0219 or christoph.lohr@iapmo.org.
