Getting started

Thinking about installing a Changing Places toilet? Luckily the Changing Places project has done most of the leg work for you.

The refreshed Changing Places design specifications 2020 replace the Changing Places Information Guide and Technical Standard, June 2017. The Changing Places design specifications 2020 provide the technical design specifications and the estimated costs to build a Changing Places facility to four standard design options.

All Changing Places must be approved by a Changing Places Assessor. The accreditation process ensures that Changing Places are built to standard so that users can be confident that the design is fit for purpose. Accreditation provides facility managers with peace of mind, knowing that if they build to the Changing Places design, they will be compliant with the recently introduced National Construction Code requirements for Accessible Adult Change Facilities (F2.9 and Specification F2.9), if applicable.

Once a Changing Places Assessor has assessed a facility and is satisfied it meets the requirements of the Changing Places design specification, they issue the facility manager with a Statement of Compliance.

The facility manager then submits an online registration form via the Changing Places Australia website, requesting that their facility be listed on the Changing Places website and uploads their Statement of Compliance. It is the facility manager’s responsibility to forward their Statement of Compliance to Changing Places Australia.
