BTA Consultation Service

Each year we visit many hundreds of public toilets across the UK. Over the years we have built up a unique fund of practical experience, covering every aspect of toilet provision and operation and most importantly this knowledge is centered on the views and requirements of the user.

Our vision is that every ‘away from home’ toilet, certainly every Local Authority public toilet, should receive an annual independent assessment and appropriate star rating.

In the meantime, the BTA is ready and able to visit any type of provider – Local Authority or commercial provider – as well as health, education and hospitality establishments, to discuss current standards of provision, future strategy and issues relevant to design, layout, product and service needs, security and maintenance – as well as marketing or revenue generating opportunities.

The BTA’s Toilet Consultation Service provides impartial, independent advice at a realistic cost which is discounted for BTA members.

2015 British Toilet Association Innovation Awards

The BTA Awards will recognise innovation in three key areas of ‘away from home’ provision:

1. New products
2. New services
3. Efficiency improvements

The BTA wants to hear about innovation that really improves the use or provision of publicly accessible toilets. Anyone can nominate a provider or supplier or their own organisation or company by sending an email to by close of business on Wednesday 30th September 2015. Nominations must include details of why the product, service or efficiency should be awarded a BTA Innovation Award. All nominations will be acknowledged.

A panel comprising members of the BTA Management Committee will judge each nomination and decide who will gain awards. There may be more than one award in each category, dependent on the number and quality of the nominations. The decisions of the judges will be final.

Each award winner will receive a trophy designed specifically for the BTA Innovation Awards and a framed BTA Innovation Award certificate.

The awards will be announced and presented to the winners at our BTA Conference & Annual General Meeting which is currently scheduled to take place in November 2015
Opportunities exist to exhibit and display your products at the BTA Conference
Please contact or call 02891 477397.

You can nominate an innovative provider or supplier by downloading a nomination form and completing it. Once you have completed the form, you can return it to us by post to the BTA offices; or you can scan the completed form and email it to us at:

Closing date for Nominations: Wednesday 30th September 2015
