Well, that got my curiosity up. Unless you have extra lavatories, when would you have one that’s not required? Please explain.

So if it is not a required lavatory, the sink is not required to be in the same room? Code from 2012 edn. please.

From the 2012 IPC:

 

 

405.3.2 Public lavatories. In employee and public toilet rooms, the required lavatory shall be located in the same room as the required water closet.

Exactly the same as the NY code, I think.

From the New York State Plumbing Code, based on the ICC Code:

405.3.2 Public lavatories. In employee and public toilet rooms, the required lavatory shall be located in the same room as the required water closet.

Is there anywhere within the International Plumbing Code that states that a sink is needed in a bathroom except in a dwelling unit. It explicitely says it for a dwelling unit but I find nowhere where it says a bathroom has to have a sink for hypothetically an E occupancy.
