To ask Her Majesty's Government whether the revised Part G of the building regulations will fully incorporate British Standard 6465 in relation to equal provision of toilets for men and women in offices.
The scale of toilet provision in different building types that are workplaces is in the first instance a matter for the Health and Safety Executive's Approved Code of Practice (ACOP) that supports the Workplace (Health, Safety and Welfare) Regulations 1992. The guidance in approved document G (sanitation, hot water safety and water efficiency) therefore makes reference to the need to be in accordance with the minimum levels of provision set out in the ACOP. However, it also explains that further guidance on the provision of toilets is set out in British Standard 6465 for those building types not covered by the ACOP or where someone wishes to provide more than the minimum recommended.
