European Standards

The European Standards Publication applies to restrooms that are not connected to any type of sewer system.

These publications are directed at industry suppliers who manufacture, portable sanitation companies that rent out units, and the clients that rent the portable restrooms. Standards ensure that people have safe, hygienic and private opportunities for the use of a sanitary restroom.

The standards are available for purchase and download via the links below.
