The International Code Council and the World Toilet Organization unveil the new G3: Global Guideline for Practical Public Toilet Design In response to a growing need to increase the design and efficiency of public toilets and committed to its mission of providing the highest quality in building safety products, the ICC Board of Directors approved the development of this Guideline through a special committee formed by global industry leaders and ICC technical experts. This Guideline is intended to provide a minimum level of quality to safeguard health, property, and public welfare by providing minimal provisions to control the design, construction, installation, quality of materials, location, operation and maintenance, and use, of public toilets. Safe drinking water is unavailable to 1.1 billion people. Over 40% of people have no access to toilets. With 40% of the world's population having no access to personal sanitation, it's no wonder the United Nations declared 2008 the International Year of Sanitation. As we know, something virtually everyone in the U.S. takes for granted is a huge issue in many undeveloped countries This guideline, unveiled in Hainan during the World Toilet Summit 2011 by Jay Peters, Executive Director of the International Code Council and Jack Sim, Founder of the World Toilet Organization, standardizes the design, installation and maintenance of public toilets to reduce construction costs, which should enable more installations around the world. The videos provided contain important information regarding the World Toilet Summit and Expo held in Hainan, China in 2011. They also contain informative interviews of global experts, including, Jack Sim (WTO), Jay Peters ICC, Trevor Mulaudzi (SAWASH) and more international experts.
