MS 1184:2014 Universal Design and Accessibility in the Built Environment - Code of Practice
This MS1184 provides building users, architects, designers, engineers, builders, building owners and managers, manufacturers, policy makers and legislators with requirements and recommendations to create a sustainable built environment which is accessible. The purpose of this standard is to define how the built environment should be designed, constructed and managed to enable people to approach, enter, use, egress from and evacuate a building independently, in an equitable and dignified manner and to the greatest extent possible. This goal is achieved by agreement on minimum standards of provision which are generally accepted to accommodate the diversities of age, disabilities and of human condition. This standard should be applied to new and renovated buildings. This Malaysian Standard provides a range of requirements and recommendations for many of the elements of construction, assemblies, components and fittings which comprise the built environment. These requirements relate to the constructional aspects of access to buildings, to circulation within buildings, to egress from buildings in the normal course of events and evacuation in the event of an emergency. The requirements and guidelines in this standard are intended to apply to persons with disabilities (PwDs). This standard is expected to be of benefit to all people, including (a) people with hearing impairments; (b) people with visual impairments; (c) people with mobility impairments; (d) people with cognitive/ learning impairments; (e) people with hidden (such as strength, stamina, mental, dexterity and allergy) impairments; and (f) people with diversities in age and stature (including frail persons).
MS 2015-1:2017 Public Toilet - Part 1: Design Criteria (First Revision)
MS 2015 consists of the following parts, under the general title Public Toilets: Part 1: Design criteria; Part 2: Inspection criteria; Part 3: Rating criteria; Part 4: Code of Practice for maintenance. The purposed of this Malaysian Standard is to provide a guideline of clean, hygienic, user and environmental friendly, safe and convenient-to-use public toilet facilities of appropriate design and quality. This Malaysian Standard provides guidance on the basic care and maintenance of the facilities in public toilets. This Malaysian Standard covers all public toilets, whether found in stand-alone structures or inside buildings (used by the occupants or by visitors to the buildings, or both). It includes statutory requirements, design, location, number, types and quality of the public toilets. Guidance is given to the provision of public toilets of various categories and adequacy, whether they may be located. This standard does not cover supply of water and storage systems for public toilets. Providers of public toilets will provide systems that are ecologically appropriate to the location and are of sound construction.
