The signs on single-user restrooms must comply with Title 24 of the California Code of Regulations. This means that each covered single-user restroom must, at minimum, have the following signage:
- A sign with a geometric symbol of a triangle superimposed on a circle.
- A designation tactile (i.e., capable of being read by touch) sign that indicates that the facility is a restroom.
Affected employers with single-occupancy restrooms on their premises should ensure that the signs on the single-user restrooms are in compliance with Title 24 of the California Code of Regulations. Employers should also take this opportunity to review the Fair Employment and Housing Council's gender identity regulations .
The California-mandated signs feature two geometric tactile symbols without braille, text, or pictograms—blank signs that California residents learned to identify by sight and feel. These remained in use after the ADA was adopted in 1990, with the state choosing to add the new ADA-standard signage rather than replacing its existing signage requirements.
