Every building must be designed and constructed in such a way that sanitary facilities are provided for all occupants of, and visitors to, the building in a form that allows convenience of use and that there is no threat to the health and safety of occupants or visitors.
There are many building types best suited for CPT installations including publicly accessible facilities such as shopping malls, entertainment or assembly buildings and transport related facilities.Where sanitary accommodation is not en suite to bedrooms, it should be located directly off a circulation area, close to bedrooms and provided in accordance with the following table: In a residential building, an accessible bedroom (see clause 4.2.9) should be provided with accessible sanitary accommodation.This should comprise of a WC, wash hand basin and a bath or shower and should be en suite to each accessible bedroom, other than: Sanitary accommodation for customers within shops and shopping malls should be clearly identified and located so that it may be easily reached.To be registered on the Changing Places’ national register all new CPTs need to meet the standards specified by the Changing Places Consortium (CPC).Meeting the consortium's standards will mean that registered facilities should meet the needs and expectations of the people who use them as well as their carers.
