All single-user toilet facilities in any California business establishment, place of public accommodation, or state or local government agency must be identified as all-gender toilet facilities and now must have a sign that states the restroom is for all genders. The signage must comply with Title 24 of the California Code of Regulations, including the required gender-neutral geometric sign (a triangle within a circle). A single-user toilet is “a toilet facility with no more than one water closet and one urinal with a locking mechanism controlled by the user.” The new law will be enforced by inspectors, building officials, and other local officials who may perform inspections to ensure compliance.
