The Jakarta Globe reports that the Indonesian Tourism and Creative Economy Ministry is undertaking a form of “toilet training” by trying to instill higher standards for public toilet facilities at parks and other public places.

In order to shift focus by park managers to rest room standards, the Ministry plans to give awards to operations maintaining clean toilets.

Firmansyah Rahim, 

Director General of Tourist Destination Development at the Ministry of Tourism, recently announced to the press that a toilet assessment program commenced on May 14, 2012, and will continue until September 9, 2012 at 62 recreation parks spread across 16 different provinces of Indonesia.

Bathrooms passing muster will be eligible to win a 2012 Sapta Pesona Award for Clean toilets.

Working on the “blue ribbon committee” assessing whether or not a park’s toilets are up to snuff (or do we mean sniff?) are Naning S. Adiwoso, the chairman of the Indonesian Toilet Association, and Surdaryatmo of the Indonesian Consumer Foundation.

The awards will be presented on September 27, 2012 timed to fall on World Tourism Day.

Firmansyah said, “Toilet management should maintain cleanliness in order to improve services for both domestic and foreign tourists.”

The program for parks duplicates similar awards given in the past by the government to zoos, airports and museums who successfully maintain clean toilets.

The 2011 World Toilet Organization Survey ranked Indonesia’s public facilities below the Philippines, Malaysia, Singapore and Thailand. Scientific evaluation means used to objectify cleanliness standards include swabs to count the germ counts on toilets included in the survey.
