“I am pleased to say that BS 6465-2: 2017 ‘Sanitary Installations. Space recommendations – code of practice’ has now been published. This updates the 1996 version, and for the first time includes space requirements for baby changing. Where possible, a separate family room is recommended, so that the parent, young children, babies (and pushchairs!) do not have to be separated to use the toilet facilities. There are other recommendations which it is hoped will ease space problems, and the standard should be useful for both the design of new toilets and for upgrading existing facilities.”
Michelle Barkley (6465-2 committee member) - 26 September 2017
