Bulletin Overview

California – you have probably heard a lot of buzz about CA AB 1732 and what it might mean to you.

The first thing to consider is that the new law, which went into effect on March 1, 2017, applies specifically to single-user toilet facilities.

The law states, “all single-user toilet facilities in any business establishment, place of public accommodation, or state or local government agency shall be identified as all-gender toilet facilities by signage that complies with Title 24 of the California Code of Regulations, and designated for use by no more than one occupant at a time or for family or assisted use.”

This should not be looked at as a change in existing valid Title 24 unisex restroom signs. It is rather a law that states you must have the proper signage on the single-user toilet facilities. The traditional Title 24 symbol with the triangle over the circle is still required. We believe we have a wide variety of choices of Title 24 Restroom Signs that will allow you to comply with CA AB 1732 (Restroom – CA Title 24 Restroom Sign Sets).
