It's the Law: Women need more toilets than men!

Q: What are the requirements for Women's Toilet Rooms in Places of Assembly? How many additional fixtures are required for Women?

A: See Local Law 57/2005 for full details. The Plumbing Fixture Count has been amended so that the requirement for the number of Womens's Toilets serving most Places of Assembly is generally twice that of Men.

The amended count is a change to Plumbing Fixture Table RS 16-5 (Minimum number of required Plumbing Fixtures).

Unisex Toilet Rooms may be used to satisfy the total number of required Plumbing Fixtures for Women.
