California Assembly Bill 1732: Single-User Restrooms Must be Identified as All Gender

| Mar 9, 2017 | Development |

As of March 1, 2017, AB 1732 added Section 118600 to Chapter 5 of Part 15 of Division 104 of the Health and Safety Code, requiring all single-user toilet facilities in any business establishment, place of public accommodation, or government agency must be identified as all-gender toilet facilities. In other words, any restroom designed for use by one person at a time, or for family or assisted use, must have signage identifying it as all-gender. Where a business has more than one restroom designed for use by only one person to at a time, no longer can one be designated for men and another for women; they both must be identified as all-gender. The signage must comply with Title 24 of 24 of the California Code of Regulations. The bill authorizes inspectors, building officials, or other local officials responsible for code enforcement to inspect for compliance with these provisions during any inspection.
