Equality Imact Assessment Report on the introduction of free sanitary products within Scottish Government buildings

Executive Summary

The provision of free sanitary products in Scottish Government buildings has been

driven by the issue of "period poverty". The Working Group have raised four points

which are considered - what products should be available, who should they be

available to, where should the products be located and what is the financial impact -

identifying potential impacts on the protected characteristics. The conclusion is that

a range of sanitary products should be available in all visitor toilets and a number of

other toilets, dependent on the building population and layout.
