Yesterday, the Guangzhou Municipal Administration Committee held a press conference, focusing on the preparation
of Guangzhou Public Toilet Construction and Management Code.
The relevant person in charge of the Municipal Urban Management Committee introduced that the Code was
commissioned by Guangzhou Academy of Social Sciences and
Guangzhou Doctoral Institute of Scientific and Technological Innovation. The Municipal Quality Supervision
Bureau held two review meetings to review and revise t
he Code and finally formed a formal draft. The Code is the first local standard for public toilets in China, which is higher
than the national standard and is in line with Guangzhou’s goal of building a “leading global city”.
As the state already has the “Design Standard for Urban Public Toilets” (CJJ14-2016) on the construction of public toilets, ma
nagement standards have been put forward in many places, such as Shenzhen Public Toilets Management Method, Tianjin Public Toilets Management
Method, Beijing Public Toilets Management Method, etc.
Reporters learned that Guangzhou this time put the construction and management of public toilets together
and formulated local standards, highlighting the innovative work.
The conspicuous position of the entrance and exit of public toilets should be set up
Labels for special toilets such as barrier-free toilets
The Code formulates various signs for public toilets, determines the guiding signs according to
the standardization requirements, and specifies the technical parameters for making the signs, specifies the size, color, font and graphics
of the signs, and puts forward for the first time the design requirements for maternal and infant toilet signs,
