BACKGROUND: Assembly Bill 1732 (Ting, Chapter 818, Statutes of 2016) was signed into law on September 29, 2016, to create Health and Safety Code Section 118600, relating to the identification of single-user toilet facilities as all-gender toilet facilities.

Health and Safety Code Section 118600 requires:

(a) 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.

(b) During any inspection of a business or a place of public accommodation by an inspector, building official, or other local official responsible for code enforcement, the inspector or official may inspect for compliance with this section.

Why is there no gender symbol/pictogram on this California restroom door sign?

California Division of the State Architect Bulletin 17-01: When changing identification symbols of existing single-user toilet facilities from gender-specific to all-gender, DSA advises against providing a pictogram to represent an all-gender image on a designation sign or unisex symbol. The pictogram might be perceived as inappropriate, and in fact, DSA reminds facility owners that a pictogram is not required.
