Actually in terms of ´standards´,ISO 17966:2016 Assistive products for personal hygiene that support users — Requirements and test methods

Useful link here in what to measure etc., if you have to replace your toilet seat.

This is the type I am after. As you can see it’s not just about the holes lining up. It has to be an exact match otherwise it won’t fit. That’s why I was hoping someone else on Esuri had replaced the same type and knew where to get them.

As stated earlier by Thomas Bern

If you want to make sure, remove one seat and take it with you to the store.

Simple

If you are in an apartment block then chances are they installed the same bathroom suites in all the apartments. If that is the case then you could ask some of the neighbours, as they will have faced the same issue.

The loo looks quite modern.

As growinspain indicated then check for a manufacturers name on the loo itself. Google, I think the manufactures along with toilets to see if you can work out the name of the bathroom suite or a model number for it. They you may be able work out which loo seat is required.

I'm guessing you want to replace because the UVA sunlight has discoloured the seat & cover. I took mine to Leroy merlin at Huelva but couldn't get an identical fit one. I decided that life is too short and I can't be arsed driving round loads of shops. My solution was to buy some abrasive steel wool and rub down the seat and cover having dismantled it by pulling out the pins. I bought a big can of brilliant white gloss spray paint from the Meca chinese shop in town. I resprayed evenly with three coats of paint one side at a time. Leave in sun for a few hours to harden between coats. Result was it looks brand new. I used almost a whole can of paint at 2.90 euros and the steel wool was left over from another job. You could use fine abrasive paper circa 480/ 520 grit. NB, Years ago I refinished classic cars so have lots of experience painting all manner of things, but anyone can do it with a bit of common sense.

Just to repeat my earlier post - we have Fadesa installed toilets exactly as you describe and got replacement in Abreu. I have the box it is described as: Gala Marina G5142001- blanco , there is also a bin number of 2805191058.
This was a couple of years back but I reckon they could get you one if they haven't got in stock

There has to be a joke here, working on it

You can try searching on e.g e--bay for 'D shaped toilet seat' if for some reason Mike's idea doesn't pan out... (pun intended). Not expensive even if you are not 'flush'

Thanks Mike, and everyone else for the info. We are on our way to CE today and will take the old seat to Abreu in Lepe as suggested 👍

I think Mike is spot on with the model number.

From my limited experience original replacements are hard to find.

I hope you are sitting down when Abreu give you a price for one

You can find a compatible seat and lid replacement for it on eBay.es or Amazon.es.

Just checked one reputable supplier who has them in stock. 51 euro inc delivery.

Best

All sorted, Abreu in Lepe had one in stock for 85€ which is a bit pricey but I know some seats can cost a couple of hundred. The model number was a bit different than the one stated above but fits perfect. You can get them cheaper on Amazon, and will probably buy from there next time.
