The “Happy Toilet” scheme aims to raise the standard of public toilets throughout Singapore and promote those establishments that look after the needs of their customers. Participation is entirely voluntary and will be managed according to guidelines set out by the RAS and endorsed by the World Toilet Organisation.

This programme was launched by Mr Lim Swee Say, the former Minister for the Environment on 1 July 2003.

It is a star-grading initiative for public toilets which focuses on five main areas – Design, Cleanliness, Effectiveness, Maintenance and User Satisfaction. This allows users to leave the toilet happy, as the programme will ensure that they have the best experience, with all their needs met.
