Changing Places state that builders must meet a certain standard and criteria to be registered on the Changing Places map and to be allowed to use the Changing Places logo. This is to ensure that any facility advertised as a Changing Places toilet meets the expectations and needs of the people who intend to use them.
For advice on health and safety and legal matters, please refer to our legal factsheet. Remember that slings should not be provided by the venue.
A Changing Places must comply to the British Standard ‘BS8300:2018‘ for the design of buildings and their approaches to meet the needs of disabled people. It provides guidance on good practice for the design of new buildings and their approaches to meet the needs of disabled people.
To be registered online, the facilities must be open to the public. Also, Changing Places toilets should be installed in addition to, not in replacement of, standard accessible toilets for independent use.
