The short answer is no, not in the UK. However, times are changing and there are laws in certain parts of the USA, after government buildings lead the way, that has made it law to provide baby changing stations in both male and female washrooms. So, the UK could well follow suit and it is indeed well reported that the British Toilet Association advises that for every 10,000 people using an area, there should be at least one unisex baby-changing facility.
If they are not required by law, are baby changing units even required? We would certainly say yes! Make sure you’re also catering for the modern family and providing accessibility to a changing unit for both male and female parents. Koala Kare, a leading name in commercial baby changing stations, states that 73% of parents are more likely to visit businesses with baby changing stations.
Whether your facility is a restaurant, cafe, pub or bar, the type of washroom you have could be a deal-breaker in who visits. It also makes perfect sense for larger types of public buildings like train stations, shopping centres, airports, bus stations, hospitals etc to be more family-friendly. Babies need to have nappies changed! Giving an easily available, safe environment for this to be performed in should be at the forefront of any building owner's priorities, both for customer satisfaction and hygiene protocols.

These are a style of baby changing unit that either sits on the top of or can be recessed fitted within a surface. They offer a perfect solution when wall space is limited. If space is at a premium and you have the wall space, then a wall-mounted option may be more suitable.
A folding baby changing station is a real space saver as it can fold to depths of around 100mm. They come as a horizontal changing unit or vertical changing table. They have smooth piston open and closing mechanisms for safety and ease of use. They are securely mounted to the wall and easily installed. Recessed options are available, but of course, take a bit more consideration for install.
As would be expected, the changing tables come in a variety of finishes to suit. There are white changing tables, grey changing tables, cream changing tables and black changing tables. The bed of the units are usually made from an easy to clean durable plastic like polypropylene with the outer cover being made from the same material or high-quality stainless steel.
