How the Ontario Building Code changes affect barrier-free washrooms

"On December 27, 2013, Ontario Regulation 368/13 was filed to amend the new 2012 Building Code, O.Reg. 332/12.The effective date of the amendment is January 1, 2015."
Regarding barrier-free washrooms, the key changes include:
- Requirements for power door operators at the entrance door to all barrier-free and universal washrooms Amended mounting height and location requirements for washroom accessories such as towel dispensers and hand dryers
- New fold-down grab bar design options to allow for transfer space on both sides of the water closet
- Requiring an L-shaped grab bar in all cases and removing the option to provide a diagonal grab bar
- Increased minimum clear floor area in barrier-free washroom stalls required to allow for turning space
- At least one universal toilet room would also be required in all buildings, and, for multi-storey buildings, at least one for every three floors.
- Space for an adult change table will have to be provided in all universal toilet rooms except in buildings under 300 square metres in building area.
